Award-winner Gladiolus 'Robinetta' is a lovely addition to the garden with its long-lasting, fiery red blooms with dainty white markings. Its eye-catching flowers (up to 7 per stem), are slightly fragrant and grow on loose spikes (2-3 spikes per corm) that are adorned by narrow, deep-green sword-shaped leaves. Spectacular on its own, in the garden or in a vase! 

★ Blooming in early summer for up to 3-4 weeks, this breathtaking beauty grows up to 18 - 24 inches tall (45 - 60 cm). 

 Ideal for cutting, this plant also deserves a prime spot in beds, borders and is well suited for small gardens and containers. Plant in groups of 5 minimum for best visual impact. 

★ Best flowering occurs in full sun in humusy, medium moisture, well-drained soils. This plant adapts to a wide range of soils except clay.

★ Recipient of the prestigious Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural Society (1993)

★ Corms may be started indoors in early spring (for earlier blooms) or planted directly in the ground after the danger of frost has passed

★ Provide consistent moisture during the growing season and do not allow soils dry out. After flowering, you may reduce watering.

★ Belonging to the Gladiolus Nanus Group, a group including gladioli that are more cold tolerant, bloom earlier and enjoy a softer, less formal look than the Large-Flowered Gladiolus, this Gladiolus is hardy to zones 5-10. It can stay in the ground year-around in zone 6 and warmer but will require added protection in zone 5 (winter mulch).

★ If you live in a cool area (hardiness zones 3-5) and you want to save your corms for next spring, you may dig them up before the first frost and store them over winter before replanting them next spring. Store them in a dry, cool, frost-free place where temperature remains between 35 - 40 °F (1 - 4°C).

Gladiolus Growing Tips

★ Gladioli, and also other bulbous plants, are often planted too far apart from one another, in which case they do not show their best. Bulbous plants are prettiest when in large, closely planted groups.

★ Plant your Gladioli close together in order for them to "hold" each other. This will reduce the need for staking

★ Gladioli only bloom for 2 weeks or so. To extend their colorful show, there are 2 options. Either you plant them every two weeks from the last frost date until mid June, or you simply buy early, mid, and late blooming varieties.
