GLADIOLUS - species

We are concentrating on increasing our range of the delightful species gladiolus. These are not to be confused with the large-flowered Gladiolus; they have a grace and charm absent in many of these.  They flower much earlier, are smaller, more elegant and do not require staking. Most are reasonably hardy in the south of England and like to be planted in full sun in a good garden soil.
