- Category: Perennial G: Gladiolus
- Status: Lost This Plant
Initial Notes:Probably from Michigan Bulb many years ago (about 8, so maybe 1996).
I planted these and did not realize they needed to be dug up each fall but most of them wintered over the first few years.
Lost a few over winter 2002-03 and a few more over 2003-04.
Supposed to be hardy to Zone 8-10 but if planted near a warm wall may be good to zone 6 (my zone).
Protect with thick loose mulch.
