The genus Gladiolus comprises 260 species. The impressive flower spikes of Gladioli come in a wide array of beautiful colors. Gladiolus bulbs are not true bulbs but the corms.A corm is a shortened and thickened section of the stem that appears at the base of the plant. On the corm are buds for each layer of leaves.

Gladiolus plants are attractive, perennial herbs and semi-hardy in temperate climates. They grow from rounded, symmetrical corms that are enveloped in several layers of brownish, fibrous tunics. The fragrant Gladiolus flower spikes are large and one-sided, with secund, bisexual flowers. Each Gladiolus flower is subtended by 2 leathery, green bracts. The sepals and the petals are almost identical in appearance and are termed tepals.

Caring for Reward

  • Apply a 2 to 4-inch layer of mulch around the gladiolus to retain moisture and control weeds.
  • Water plants during the summer if rainfall is less than 1 inch per week. Remove individual flowers as they fade, and cut back flower stalks once all flowers have gone by.
  • Remove the weeds. Keep in the warm weather of summer for wonderful growth.
  • Some parts of the Gladiolus plant are poisonous if ingested and handling some species may cause skin irritation or allergic reactions.
