Add a blaze of fiery orange heat to the late summer border with the Gladioli Live Oak. The Gladioli plant is celebrated for its upright, statuesque habit and showy ornamental blooms which appear between June and August for guaranteed drama and impact. This vibrant variety produces bold, sunset-orange flowers from sturdy flower spikes, and will grow to a mature height of 90cm making it the perfect way to add height and dimension to your floral display. What's more, Gladioli are also a favorite cut flower of the British florist, so we recommend planting in abundance to ensure that there are enough stems to be cut and enjoyed in a vase or summer bouquet. Plant in sunny or partially shaded locations to ensure optimum richness of flower colour. 12/14cm corms supplied.

Planting

Soil Type

Well drained, light, sandy soil

Plant gladioli corms about 10-15cm deep and about 10-15cm apart, in fertile/well drained soil in spring. Planting can be done in succession from early March onwards to the end of May at fortnightly intervals. This ensures a continuity of flowers throughout the summer months. When planting in a heavy soil, place some sand underneath each corm to help with drainage.
You can water regularly as the growth begins to appear and you can dead head when flowers begin to die off, though make sure to leave foliage to grow throughout the summer. In late autumn when frosty and cold nights are likely to return, you should lift and dry the corms and store over the winter in a frost free shed/garage until ready to plant again next year.
