Gladiolus Tom produces the reddest of the red gladiola flowers and tall and elegant spires that grow 60-100cm (24-40″) tall. The flowers emerge perfectly, as though direct from the florist, each one opening from the bottom up in succession over a long period in mid-summer. Plant in full sun and be sure to lift the tender bulbs in the fall for storage in a frost-free area like the basement or garage. These make sensational cut flowers and they catch the eye of hummingbirds for an added bonus. Each package contains ten bulbs.
