Red Balance Gladiolus Red Balance Gladiolus

Red Balance Gladiolus

Best Red Glad for Cut Flowers
While a red gladiolus is eye-catching in a bouquet, that color tends to fade fast. This brand-new variety holds onto its intense hue for a long time—both in the garden and in the vase. In fact, its cut-flower performance is so impressive because that's where we got it. Red Balance is only newly available in home gardening as of spring 2020. Before that it was solely available in the cut-flower industry, so grab this and grow like the pros! As a tender bulb, it'll grow easily and quickly with a strong, vigorous performance. Once the season ends, you'll want to discard it (if you're using it as an annual), lift it and store it, or if you're featuring this variety in a container, you can just roll the whole pot into a sheltered location for the winter.
