Gladioli are popular garden plants, bearing long, pointed leaves from which tall flower spikes emerge in summer. They're perfect for growing in a sunny herbaceous border and make excellent cut flowers.

Gladiolus 'Miss Green' produces tall spikes of white-green flowers. For best results grow in well-drained soil in full sun. Water well during the growing season and stake plants before the flower spike emerges. Hailing from the Mediterranean region, Gladiolus 'Miss Green' is frost tender. Lift the corms each autumn and overwinter them in frost-free conditions.
