For the first time this spring I have planted by root gladiolas. Please tell me any or all information about this particular flower.

    The University of Missouri extension service has everything you need to know right here:

    I've never heard the term "root" gladiola....hhhmmm? Mary, make sure you get them staked as many times the heavy flowers pull the stalks down. If you bought a variety of colors, it will be a wonderful display! There are winter hardy varieties that come back each year here in NY. I stopped taking them up for winter storage.
