    Acidanthera murielae syn. Gladiolus murielae

    The Victorians loved Acidanthera murielae (a cousin of the gladiolus) for cut flowers and it's easy to see why. It has a wonderful scent and lasts brilliantly in the vase. It has become my staple autumn flower for cutting, that I couldn't be without. One of the best statuesque and scented flowers…

    Gladiolus 'Chocolate'

    We are in love with gladioli for planting, and arranging with our dahlias, every summer and autumn. They provide what Vita Sackville West taught us was so important for good plant design, the vertical minaret to the dahlias dome. And with ‘Chocolate’, you’ve got a colour so rich and…

Gladioli Bulbs at Sarah Raven

These are top size gladioli corms and will be sent with full growing instructions.

I couldn’t be without gladioli, but you have to go for the classy and unusual varieties. I love them lining the path with dahlias, or shoulder to shoulder in the cutting garden. I try to plant fifteen gladioli bulbs every couple of weeks to give a succession of flowers through summer and autumn.
