Description

Plant Gladiolus 'Bibi' and watch it sparkle like a charm in your summer planting scheme. Those almost neon pink blooms are as bright and cheerful as can be. They make an impact from a distance with their glowing colour, and close up you can admire its gloriously abstract details. Speckled markings make each bloom unique and fascinating—Gladiolus 'Bibi' are a joy to have in the border but it’s a good idea to plant a good number of them because it’s hard to resist snipping some of these fabulous flower spikes to pop into a handmade posy. 

More petite in size than many other gladioli, Gladiolus tubergenii 'Bibi' is a more dainty character which reaches a height of around 70cm. Starry blooms adorn its upright flower stems, and these wand-like stems provide a vertical structure in a mixed border which contrasts beautifully with bushy perennials, shrubs and ornamental grasses. Plant Gladiolus 'Bibi' in groups to create bright pockets of colour, or dot them around between other plants like little highlights.
