Large flowered gladiolaLarge flowering gladioli are the most well-known gladioli in the Bakker.com collection. A large flowered gladiola is very conspicuous with lovely big blooms. They come in many shades and varieties and lots of pretty mixes. Gladioli are not just pure gems in our gardens, they make terrific cut flowers for the vase and a bouquet too. Best time to cut them is while they are still in bud, just as the bottommost flower is opening. Leave two or three leaves on the stems too.
Miniature gladioliThe short stature of Glamini® gladiolas makes them very versatile. Of course you can have them in a flower border but potted up for on the patio or decking makes them a really welcome addition and adds cheer and colour.
Mini-glads won’t grow as tall as the large flowered gladiola so the chance of being blown over is greatly reduced. Miniature gladioli Glamini® also make a lovely cut flower.
Fringed GladiolasFringed Petal Gladiolas are so-called because of the distinctive, wavy edged petals. If you love gladiola, you’re going to really love these. Fringed petal gladiolas flower for a long time, look rather exotic and also make a great cut flower. The mix on offer at Bakker.com contains varieties in pretty pastel shades. A lovely addition to any summer garden.
