Gladiolus nanus 'Prins Claus'

7.00

‘Prins Claus’, What a gem! At first glance you can almost mistake them for Cymbidium growing in the garden. Very striking color contrast with the bright white petals and its florescent pink butterfly landing strip! Hardy to zone 5. June into august.

Nanus Gladiolus are a great new addition to our selection. These are a type of (mini) gladiola that has many benefits over the standard common gladiolas available. The Nanus Gladiola ( aka Colvilei Gladiola) only grows to about 24-28” tall and is not nearly as susceptible to toppling over due to wind and heavy rains. Another big bonus over regular Gladiolas is that these these are hardy to Zone 5 and will thrive well year after year in most areas.The flowers are more exotic looking and almost orchid like, they are a garden favorite for Hummingbirds and butterflies. They do require a little more water than other gladiolas, the soil at the bulb/corm level cannot be allowed to dry out . Plant the corms about 4 inches deep and 6 inches apart in a full sun or half shady spot.
