Product Description ( Gladiolus ALEX.THE GREAT )
A snow-white gladiolus that is sure to be a highlight of your garden. The name of the variety sounds like 'Alexander the Great'. And it really lives up to its name. It belongs to the group of Large-flowered gladioli, which are the most popular in the world. Its flowers measure between 11.5-14cm in diameter. They simply glow in the garden! The flowers are fragrance-free.
Alexander the Great or Macedonian is one of the greatest military leaders and conquerors in history. He changed the world in just eleven years.
This gladiolus has long, sword-shaped leaves. They overlap, which means they overlap and fan out. The spectacular flowers cover the flower stalk densely and unilaterally at the top of the tall peduncle. The flowers are funnel-shaped, six-lobed and open from the bottom of the stem. Many of them bloom at the same time. The plant is about 140 cm tall and more than 15 cm wide. Flowering time: July to August (approx. 95 days after planting).
Gladiolus Alexander the Great grows in full sun and well-drained, fertile soils. They grow best in humus-rich soils with a neutral, slightly acidic or slightly alkaline acidity index. Fertile and moist soils are also preferred. Gladioluses look best when planted in masses. Ideal for cuttings. If the corms are planted at short intervals, their flowering season can be extended. The location is sunny and protected from winds.
Plant the corms in the soil after the threat of frost returns has passed. The planting depth is 10-15 cm, with the same spacing. As it is a heat-loving plant, the bulbs should be dug out of the ground before the first frost. They are then dried and stored in a cool, frost-free, dry place.
