GLADIOLA bulbs - Pretty Guy

GLADIOLA bulbs - Pretty Guy


(10 bulbs in a bag) 


A brand new offering from our hybridizing friends at For Ever in the Netherlands, Pretty Guy produces tall, robust stalks covered in wide, clear red florets with snowy white eye zones. Flower buds grow up one side of the stems and 10 to 12 will open at a time, delivering a flamboyant floral display to the area. Premium glads are ideal for adding texture and architectural interest to back borders, cutting gardens and foundation beds. Many gardeners and pros alike love to add colorful gladiolus to fence lines or along barn walls, where the rustic backdrops really make the colors pop! An excellent, fast-growing plant for summer.
