Gladiolus carneus - Painted Lady

Availability: 18 available

Pack of 5 seeds of this fairly hardy bulbous plant.

A truly beautiful Gladiolus species which is a parent of many of the pink flowered hybrids that are now available. In my opinion, none are a patch on the original offered here. Fully deserving of it's common name, the flowers have an almost hand-painted quality about them.

It is a highly variable species, depending where in the range it comes from. The strain offered here is heavily marked on a base of pink. A winter flowering species in habitat, in the northern hemisphere it is most likely to be a late summer flowering plant. The stems can be over 1 metre tall and carry 12 or more florets opening in succession.

Easy from seed, it can be sown at most times of the year, but in the Northern Hemisphere, a late summer/autumn sowing under glass will yield the best results. As with all Gladioli, it will produce numerous offsets when the corms are mature. These can be used to further increase your stock.
