Ednie Flower Bulb, Inc.

(Gladiola, Sword Lily, Wine and Roses Gladiola)

Large pastel-pink flowers with burgundy throats line the tall flower stems of this Grandiflora type Gladiolus. Famed for their crowded spikes of showy flowers on tall sturdy stems, Grandiflora glads are complex hybrids derived from some of the more than 250 Gladiolus species. All gladiolus are herbaceous perennials that grow from bulbous corms covered with fibrous papery skin. Many are native to Africa, particularly South Africa, but other species are from Asia, the Mediterranean...

(Gladiolus, Painted Lady)

An old garden favorite, the painted lady gladiolus is planted for its lovely blooms and is a hybrid parent of many newer gladiolus cultivars. Native to South Africa, this bulbous, clump-forming tender perennial inhabits sloped grasslands and areas, often with sandy loam soils. It naturalizes easily and has become weedy in some parts of the world, including Australia.

Clumps of long, sword-shaped rise from the ground and are equitant, which means they overlap and unfold like a fan. Both the leaves...

An old garden favorite, cornflag is planted for its lovely spikes of deep magenta blooms. Native to Spain and northwest Africa, this bulbous, clump-forming tender perennial naturally inhabits dry grass and shrub lands. It is used in hybridization of new gladiolus varieties and naturalizes easily. In fact, has become naturalized in many tropical and subtropical areas worldwide.

The leaves are long, sword-shaped and in an equitant arrangement, which means they overlap and unfold like a fan. Both...

(Byzantine Gladiolus, Cornflag, Sword Lily)

The commonly planted Byzantine cornflag is an old garden favorite that offers spikes of bright magenta flowers in early summer. It is distinguished by its robust nature, the distinct white lines along its lower petals, unique floral calyces (the structures at the base of the flowers) and more limited natural distribution. Otherwise, it is just like standard cornflag.

Cornflag is native to regions of Spain and northwest Africa, this bulbous, clump-forming tender perennial naturally inhabits dry...

(Gladiolus, Large-flowered Gladiolus, Sword Lily)

Hybridized from a number of African gladiolus, these popular and showy summer-blooming herbaceous perennials grow from a bulb-like corm. The spikes of large, richly hued tubular flowers are held above upright, sword-shaped leaves.

Grandiflora gladiolus are best grown in fertile, well-drained soil in full sun to part sun. They make excellent cut flowers and may be planted in mixed borders, beds, or large containers. A loose, airy winter mulch will boost their hardiness.

(Acidanthera, Fragrant Gladiolus, Gladiolus, Peacock Gladiolus)

Variously known as peacock gladiolus, fragrant gladiolus, sword lily and acidanthera (a reference to its former scientific name), this species of gladiolus is a graceful representative of the group. It is native to the mountainous regions of East Africa and adds a lovely tall focal point to perennial gardens and containers. Gladiolus murielae is a flowering perennial that grows from a bulbous corm (a swollen, solid, bulb-like underground structure) covered with fibrous papery skin. The...

(Gladiola)

The leaves are long, strap or sword-shaped and equitant, which means they overlap and unfold like a fan. The flower spikes appear in spring, summer or autumn. The colorful, funnel-shaped blooms have six petals/tepals that join at the base. They line the tall stems on one side and open from the bottom of the spike up. Most gladioli grown today are hybrids of complex origin. Nonetheless, there are three distinct types of Gladiolus hybrids with differing characteristics.

The Grandiflora...

(Climbing Lily, Flame Lily, Gloriosa Lily)

Scrambling through shrubs or climbing up a trellis, gloriosa lily is loved for its audacious flowers that are twisting and colored red, yellow and green. A cold-tender herbaceous perennial from tropical Africa and parts of southern India, it grows from tubers (fleshy swollen underground stems).

Bright green, oval to lance-shaped leaves line the thin clambering stems that emerge each spring. With the warmth of early summer, stem tips and side branches display light green flower buds that then...
