A few years ago my daughter gave me a few Gladiolus bulbs. I planted them in a sunny area and forgot about them. Then each August I was greeted by these beautiful flowers.
Gladiolus comes in a variety of colors and is a nice addition to a garden. If you have your home on the market in the summer just imagine how nice your garden would look with a variety of Gladiolus.
It is a plant even those without a green thumb can grow successfully. You can find growing and maintenace information here
