Description

Cousins to the gladiola, these are hardy plants that produce clumps of green sword-shaped leaves, with tall, arching spikes of funnel-shaped blossoms appearing in mid to late summer. Several named varieties are now available, in a range of hot colors. This selection has brilliant flame-red flowers, and a tall habit. Outstanding cut flowers. Hummingbirds LOVE this plant! Clumps should be divided every three years, in spring.
