*Gladiolus 'Sparkler', Premium Two/Tone
Item GL588

Gladiolus 'Sparkler', is a Premium, Two/Tone variety. This is a very striking, red with yellow, fancy Gladioli! This color combination is a bold, eye-catching combination. 'Sparkler' is sure to make a great cut flowers for your summer parties!

An old-time favorite, gladioli are usually grown for elegant flower arrangements. They come in a rainbow of colors, and their long stems mean you can grow armloads of flowers in a small space. Gladioli make great cut flowers. Their sword-like foliage and tall, impressive flower spikes, make striking accents in the mixed flower border. They are also key elements in a shrub border and amongst perennials. One of the best flowers for arrangements, lasting a week or more in the vase.

For best garden effect, plant in groups of six or more of a single color, or grow dozens of them in a bed reserved for cutting. Imagine the luxury of having armloads of glads to display around the house!
