FOTD : gladiolus

On my walk today :

Gladiolus is a genus of perennial cormous flowering plants in the iris family. It is sometimes called the ‘sword lily’, but is usually called by its generic name.

SHADE AND SUN: Gladiolus grow best in full sun, but will also flower in partial shade.

ZONE: Gladiolas are winter hardy in zones 7-10. In colder zones they can be grown as annuals or the corms may be dug up in the fall and stored indoors for replanting the next spring. Not sure about your growing zone? Check the USDA Hardiness zone map here.

WHEN TO PLANT: Gladiolus corms may be planted from spring through early summer. The flowers bloom approximately 90 days after planting.
