Hardy glad yields colourful blooms
Developed to be hardy enough to be left in the ground year-round in all but the coldest areas, Impressive offers the beauty of a fine gladiolus without the necessity of lifting in fall. Introduced in 1957, this time-tested gladiolus opens its dazzlingly bright blooms, 10 to 12 at a time, from early to midsummer. These eye-catching flowers, which are light pink with vivid pink to red markings, grow on sturdy stems 45–55" tall, about half the height of many glads and ideal for use in front of a border. Sure to draw butterflies, hummingbirds and honeybees to your garden, but foraging deer will tend to ignore. Also a great cut flower for use in bouquets and floral arrangements. We recommend planting a few bulbs each week instead of planting them all at once, to ensure a longer blooming period.Gladiolus nanus
