Description

(36-48” tall x 10” wide) King’s Gold Gladiolus sports ruffled golden flowers and tall vertical accents to create a stunning fit-for-a-king focal point in your garden during the summer months. Individual deeply-throated yellow blooms open from the bottom of the flowering spike upwards in mid-summer and are surrounded by green, sword-shaped foliage. The overall look is one of abundance and adds strong vertical lines to a garden design. King’s Gold Gladiolus can have up to ten blossoms open at once, making those tall accents perfect cut flowers for your more dramatic arrangements. ‘King’s Gold,’ like all glads, prefers that its corms to be planted into rich, well-draining soil that is moisture retentive. Shelter from high winds is also advisable to protect the heavy flower spikes (inflorescences) from flopping. In cooler climates (zones 3-7), the corms can be lifted when the foliage browns in autumn, and stored in a cool, frost-free location for more gold next summer!
