Gladiolus ‘Cherry Splash’

Gladiolus ‘Cherry Splash’ will add a gorgeous pop of color to your garden with bright yellow blossoms with a splash of red!  Gladiolus are a garden favorite, due to their elegant flower spikes and sword like foliage.  They are easy to grow and require little maintenance.  Their long stems allow you to grow armloads of flowers, making them perfect for small spaces and container gardens.  Gladiolus are a stunning cut flower and typically last a week or more in a vase.  They also make a beautiful addition to a shrub border or perennial garden.

Gladioli have been extensively hybridized to offer an incredible array of colors.  Plant in groups of six or more of a single color for the best garden effect, or grow dozens of them in a bed reserved for cutting.  Imagine the luxury of having armloads of glads to display around the house!

Planting/Care Instructions +

Planting Instructions: Gladiolus will grow in any good garden soil but do need full sun and good drainage. Plant 4" deep in clay soils, 6" deep in others; the deeper the planting the less need for staking. Stake for best appearance and straightest stems. Space planting times at two week intervals from early spring to late June to ensure a continuation of mid and late summer blooms. Increase water and fertilizer when flowers begin to develop.
