Withstands winter and returns the following year with a bright fanfare of flowers! Winter-Hardy Gladiolus come in a random mix of pink, red, purple and white flowers that add elegance to garden settings and containers. They make showy cut flowers, too. Unlike some gladiolus, though, Winter Hardy Gladiolus do not need to be dug up in the fall. Growing 18-24 in. tall, they're ideal for patio containers and borders. They perform best when planted in full sun to partial shade. Deer tend to avoid. 8-10 cm bulbs. Zones 4-10.
