Today’s Star

We planted a cluster of these Abyssinian gladiolus or Star gladiolus (Gladiolus murielae) early this summer. The first bloom appeared yesterday.

The guides say this is hardy to zone 7. We’re in zone 6a. Some special attention might be required if we want to keep it growing longer than one summer.
