  • Comments: Brilliant blooms grace sword-shaped foliage mid-Summer, topping 3 - 4 foot stalks (may require staking). Ideal in borders or massed in groups. Our choice of colors. Dig bulbs for Winter. Plant glads in the Spring as soon as the ground is workable. Generally, early May begins the planting season. Extend the blooming season by multiple plantings through mid-June. Days to bloom can vary from 60 to 120 days, depending on variety and size of corm. With planning, the blooming period can extend for several months. To plant corms, dig a trench or hole. Corms may be spaced fairly close together (two to six inches), but for large, show-quality flowers, more space is needed. Two to four times the corm diameter is a good spacing rule. Determine the final depth and spacing for planting by corm size and soil type. Plant large corms about six to seven inches deep in light soils, and about four inches deep in heavy soils. Plant smaller corms shallower. Set corms in place, pointed side up, scar side down. Be sure the corms are upright. If corms are planted as deeply as possible, they will be held firmly in place and require little staking or support.
