Notes:

My father-in-law bought this from Costco, and threw away the package after he planted it. Now he doesn’t remember what this plant is. It just started blooming here in GA, and is about 4 feet tall.

    Back in the 50s my mother had a small field of “glads” in the coastal sandy soil in Midway, GA. She sold the flowers to local florists. Seeing this one makes me appreciate and miss her even more.

    Thanks. It is so tall, actually we need to put support on the stems since they are 4 feet tall, and rain and wind knock some of them down yesterday. But it looks beautiful when it stays up.

    Gladiola In Georgia, they naturalize… Those poor folk up in the snow belt have to dig them each year and bring the bulbs inside…
