Gladiolus colvillei 'The Bride' is pretty, delicate and invaluable for May pots and flower arrangements. I love this mixed with aquilegias in the garden and the vase.

Most gladioli you plant in the spring, but these species varieties and their sports you plant in the autumn. They also look wonderful in pots.

These are easy to grow and provide welcome early summer flowering in the borders. The flowers are delicate and beautiful and last well in vases. Hoping for the same success with them second year runnning! Na
