This variable dwarf species Gladiolus has a range of flower solid colors, bi colored and patterns. About 10 to 12 blossoms per stem. The most notable are the ones with a vibrant color splotch on the lower petals. The base color of the petals can range from white to pink and peach, while the splotch is magenta. They have a vibrant red throat. Plants get to be 12″-18″ and when planted out rarely need staking. Bloom time for us is the start of summer.
