Summer Flowering Bulbs to Plant in Spring
The diversity of color that comes from the gladiolus bulb (or corm) is astounding. From the softest white to the deepest, nearly black purple and everything in between, you won't be hard pressed to find one that speaks to you. Sometimes called sword lily, these striking perennials arrive during early- to mid-summer and will continue blooming for about two months. They make a dramatic arrangement with a very light and clean fragrance.
