ANGELINA MASTERS GARDENERS: Plant gladioli to make different bouquets of flowers | Community News

One of the joys of gardening is an abundance of flowers to cut and arrange in bouquets. Gladiolus is a flower with sword-shaped foliage that features large funnel-shaped flower spikes in brilliant colors in early summer. In my home state of Michigan, gladioli are sold in packages at farmers’ markets and grocery stores.

Gladiolus means “little sword” and it grows from a bulb. Although considered a perennial, I raise gladioli as an annual. I buy bulbs from a local store at the start of each spring. Bill Welch, in his book “Bountiful Flower Garden,” recommends planting swords in late winter or early spring so that they bloom before our extreme heat begins.
