Funny Fiction is considered a Novelty Dutch Gladiolus due to its exclusive, exotic. Spring growth is robust and by mid-summer the plants send up a flamboyantly colourful spire of flowers that can reach 100cm (40") tall. These make excellent cut flowers to enjoy indoors, and several stems make a striking bouquet. Grow in full sun. Be sure to lift the corms (bulbs) in the fall to store over winter in a frost-free spot.
Eight corms per package.
Bulbs are easy to plant and easy to grow. Flower Bulbs are broken down into two very general groups – Fall planting bulbs benefit from sitting in cold soil. Spring planting bulbs do not require cold soil to trigger flowering. Fall planting bulbs can be planted any time between late September and January, but most gardeners plant fall bulbs in October and November, about the same time you would plant garlic. Fall planting bulbs will bloom the following spring and early summer. Spring planting bulbs should be sunk into the ground in March and April. They tend to bloom later in the spring, into mid-summer.
