Almost everyone will tell you that gladioli are for spring planting—but what they don’t know can set your garden apart from the run-of-the-mill. The truth is that this genus includes species—like Gladiolus byzantinus—that are adapted to winter growth and mid-spring flowering since they come from a climate that enjoys winter rainfall and dry summers.

Use this little-known fact to snap up your Gladiolus byzantinus bulbs for autumn planting and be the first to enjoy gladiolus blooms while other gardeners wait for the spring planted varieties to grow. In every other respect, your gladioli will be unmistakable, so expect a few “How on earth did you do that?” questions from your gardening friends!
