Gladiolus ‘Robinetta’ – Sword-Lily ‘Robinetta’
Gladiolus ‘Robinetta’ is a beautiful and vibrant variety of Gladiolus that is sure to add an elegant touch to any garden. This stunning plant features lightly fragrant, fiery red blooms with white markings. Up to 7 blooms are held aloft on each bloom spike, with spikes framed by narrow, deep green, sword-shaped leaves.
The blooms of Gladiolus ‘Robinetta’ appear in mid-summer and make a lovely addition to any summer garden. Since the flowers open from the bottom of the spike, Gladioli offer a long-lasting floral display, with each spike blooming for up to two weeks.
Perfect for planting in beds, borders, and cutting gardens, making a spectacular cut flower. Gladioli are also well suited to container growing. Wherever you put them, they deserve a prime spot.
For best flowering, position somewhere in full sun with well-drained soil, and provide consistent water during the growing season. After flowering, you may reduce watering. The underground corms grow bigger and multiply each year, and will produce larger plants with more flowers. Very rewarding!
Gladiolus ‘Robinetta’ is also a holder of the prestigious Award of Garden Merit from the Royal Horticultural Society (1993).
