The scoop on Gladiolus Albus

Looking much less formal than a tall gladiolus and more like an exotic cousin with roots in the wilds of South Africa (which it is), Albus is a winter hardy option to weave into existing gardens or add to mixed containers. A few here and a few there to add a light, swept away effect, year after year. No need to lift the bulbs in fall as with the tall glads; these overwinter.

Why Grow Hardy Gladiolus?

  • Hardy glads grow to just 20"; easy to weave into beds
  • Earlier blooms extend the glad season
  • Winter hardy to zone 5; no need to lift in fall
Hardy glads have been around for a while but are still relatively unknown. You could be the first in your neighborhood to grow them, you trendsetter, you.
