PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).

Gladiolus communis subsp. byzantinus
Byzantine gladiolus
Currently unavailable
Type/Hardiness Herbaceous, bulbous, Perennial, Borderline hardy
Flowering period Late spring
Height 18-24in/45-60cm
Light preference Sun/part shade
Soil preference Any reasonable, free-draining soil
Sowing time/depth ,
A delightful species gladiolus with vibrant magenta blooms in late spring. The foliage can be somewhat lax, so some light support is recommended (I use string around a ring of short canes). Hardy in most areas - if in doubt, mulch!
Sowing and/or growing instructions
Plant corms 10-16cm (4-6in) deep in autumn. In heavier soils it is best to place the corms on a bed of fine grit or sharp sand to aid drainage.
