Gladiolus 'Kashmir'

Plant details

Gladioli are popular garden plants, known as sword lillies because of their long, pointed leaves. A stunning sight in late spring and early summer, Gladiolus 'Kashimir' produces tall spikes of bright pink flowers. Hailing from the Mediterranean, 'Kashimir' is borderline hardy in this country. In warmer areas, it may survive outdoors all year round. But in colder parts, it's best to lift the corms each autumn to overwinter in frost-free conditions.
