Plant Finder: about the Gladiolus genus

Common names

Sword lily

Description

Gladiolus genus (Sword lily). This genus has about 180 species of perennials with sword-shaped leaves in fan-like tufts. They have colourful flowers which are large showy and funnel-shaped.

Cultivation

They are frost to half hardy and will need a sunny and fertile, well drained site. You will need to plant the corms 10-15cm deep and the same distance apart in spring, water well in summer and support the tall cultivars with canes. Cormlets, removed after lifting should be stored in frost-free conditions and then be planted out 5cms deep in spring; lift in winter as for mature corms. They will flower in 1-2 years.

Interest and use

Is suitable for cutting or for planting in mixed borders; most hybrids are also good for exhibition.
