Last May, I planted red gladioli in the front of my house. They’re my birth flower, and I’ve always loved them. In July, I had beautiful blooms to enjoy. This year, they have begun to spread, and they started blooming the end of May! Unlike last year, I just couldn’t bear to leave them outside.
A couple days ago, I cut my blooming glads to put in vases. The best time to cut them is when the stalk has two flowers open. I was a bit late with a couple of these, but close enough.
I don’t have tall skinny vases to put these in, but they’re so pretty, who cares? These are in my dining room.
These are on my fireplace hearth, at night.
I love gladioli because each stalk is a line of beautiful flowers.
This April, I planted pink gladioli among my red ones. I’m expecting them to bloom end of June or so. Extending the blooming beauty is okay with me!
Do you grow gladioli?
