Description

For those who enjoy growing plants with a difference, Gladiolus 'Circus Color' is like no other gladiolus we’ve seen before. Purple with cream markings, these large blooms look distinctly orchid-like, and are almost guaranteed to elicit a double-take from all who see them! Reaching around 1.1m metre, Gladiolus 'Circus Color' can be woven beautifully through the middle to back of a border, or grown as a stunning focal point in a container. Be sure to plant plenty of spares for the vase. 

To boost the flower power of your gladioli, give them a tomato feed every couple of weeks from the moment the flower spikes of Gladiolus 'Circus Color' emerge until they fade away. This can be done whether in the ground or in a pot, and will encourage strong, long-lasting blooms. While it’s fine to snip off flowers once they’ve finished, it’s important to leave the leaves to die back naturally as they are crucial in supplying the corm with energy for successful growth next year.
