Gladioli ‘Byzantinus’ grow tall, slender stems, bearing possibly the most graceful and natural of all gladiolus flowers. Delicate in shape yet positively humming with vibrancy these bulbs bloom into deep magenta, funnel-shaped flowers with paler markings on the tepals.

Perfect for bridging the gap between the last of the spring bulbs and the first of the summer perennials, Gladiolus ‘Byzantinus can be planted in herbaceous borders for a lovely cottage-garden look, or dotted among ornamental grasses for a truly elegant and contemporary display. You may also be tempted to snip a few to display indoors so we recommended dual planting with separate groups for garden display and for cutting.

For best results, plant in clusters or drifts of five or more in a position of full sun with each bulb 10 cm deep and 10 cm apart. Unlike other Gladiolus, ‘Byzantinus’ tend to benefit from being planted in the autumn with an expect flowering period of around April to June.

Due to their slender stems these Gladioli may need to be staked. Gladioli need water during the growing period and mulching with peat or compost helps to conserve moisture.
