This colour combination is a real 'looker'. Pair Zita with Shaka Zulu for vibrant splashes of colour in the garden and your bouquets.
Zita won us over with her shocking contrast of colours. Blooms are lovely and large, mixing up a very bright pink-raspberry and chartreuse green and every petal is a slightly different mix.
Wow! Looking for something just a tad unusual? You’re sure to turn a few heads with this Dutch Gladiolus. These blooms will add a softness of hues to any cutting garden and a wonderful addition to any fresh cut bouquet! We suggest planting your Glads at intervals of 2 weeks, which will allow you to enjoy them in your arrangements throughout the season. For longer lasting arrangements make sure to cut the spike when only one to three florets are open.
Plant your Gladiolus in full sun away from strong winds. Staking is usually necessary - after the buds have formed place stakes at about 2 in - 5 cm from the base of the stems so as not to damage the corms. In Zones 3-6 corms should be dug up in the fall and stored in a frost free place until the following spring when they can be replanted.
