The scoop on Gladiolus Mystic Eyes

This glad fairly demands to be paired with big red dahlias and stems of Lucifer crocosmia - lots of color, texture and surfaces to entertain your eyes. Full, ruffled white petals are accented with a lipstick red splotch marking each flower as it unfurls up the stem. Not to be confused with the Van Morrison song of the same name - still, both are easy to like.

Why Grow Tall Gladiolus?

  • Strong, tall stalks with 9-14 flowers each from these jumbo size bulbs
  • Our glad bulbs are huge; a customer once commented "I thought you'd shipped me potatoes!"
  • Plant glads in full sun for larger, brighter blooms
If you're new to glads, here's our recommendation: choose two or three varieties. Plant every two weeks starting when your area is frost-free. Savor and extended harvest into fall and share with friends and neighbors. You'll hear "What?! You grew these?!"
