A Note From the Road: Road Trip Arkansas - Gladiolus with Purple 2018 - Hwy 549 - Bella Vista, Arkansas
|Gladiolus with Purple 2018 - Hwy 549 - Bella Vista, Arkansas - a.d. elliott|
Early this Spring I found a jumbo box full of gladiolus bulbs and I used them to inundate the flowerbed.
Then they started growing, and, initially, were disappointing and challenging, as the plants, which grow quite tall, struggle to stay upright, being perfectly happy to lay down across the flower bed.
and then they started to flower, and, at first, the only flowers were yellow, all of them.
Finally, a couple of weeks ago, the "other than yellow" flowers began to emerge, and the whole process was suddenly worth it. They have turned into some of the prettiest flowers I have ever tried to grow.
