Any Gladiola Fans here?
The spring catalogs are starting to show up so I'm starting to think about Glads. I didn't realize that there was a Glad Society with all the trappings of shows, awards etc. Since mostly what I know about glad varieties is what they print in the catalogs, I wondered if anyone had any favorite varieties that they'd like to share. Two that I really like are Priscilla (lovely pink with medium height), and Spic n' Span (lovely mellow orangey shades). Both have been perennial for me. On the other hand the common variety Comet has been not to my liking at all. For one it flowers too late and our heat does a number on the staying power of the blooms. And also the colors (it's a bi-color purple/yellow) don't look as good in persona as on the package. After 3 years of seeing if it would improve I finally dug it up..........Maryl
