GLADIOLA bulbs - Guinea

GLADIOLA bulbs - Guinea


(10 bulbs in a bag) 

Dutch gladiolus breeder, For Ever, has given us a brand new glad variety that is sure to become a customer favorite. Tall, robust stems bear a plethora of wide florets that appear along one side of the stalk. Each floret bud opens to reveal a gorgeous six-petaled bloom with a lovely bicolor pattern. The three back petals are a rich reddish-pink shade, while the front three petals are awash in subtle apricot tones. Contrasting white midribs add another special element to all six petals. Guinea makes a wonderful addition to a back border or foundation planting. The plants are fast and easy to grow, and are reliably deer resistant.
