Description

Like the Russian port it’s named after, the Gladiolus 'Murmansk' plant spends a lot of time covered in snow and ice. In the town’s case it’s because the port is 2 degrees north of the Arctic Circle. The plant, on the other hand, has its long flower spikes covered in icy white flowers, frilled like snowflakes and as crispy as ice. Gladiolus 'Murmansk's spectacular spires of the purest white will flower between the middle of summer and the first real frost hits your garden. If you plant the corms at separate intervals, you can extend the time you’ll have to enjoy these white gladioli!
