This late spring flower Gladiolus nanus comes in lots of varieties and in lots of colours. They have slightly smaller flowers than traditional gladioli and are slightly more delicate. They grow to about 70 centimetres, perfect for planting among medium sized shrubs, especially to create contrast. Dig a hole in your garden, place the corms in the ground and cover with soil, firm down and water well. You get a mixture of different varieties with this order, like 'Byzantinus' 'Impressive' 'Elvira' etc.
