Gladiolus 'Purple Flora' is the best velvety gladiolus. It is in tones of royal purple. There is no richer colour than this flower. It is one of the most popular large-flowered gladioli. It blooms 6 to 8 flowers at a time. It is good for the garden, for containers and for cutting. It is particularly recommended as a cut flower in a vase.

They are arranged in a unilateral spike-like inflorescence, with two rows of flowers. The petals are densely textured and corrugated.

The flowers are attractive to bees, butterflies and birds. The leaves are sword-shaped, flat, long, dark green. They are arranged in two rows. The bulb is covered with dry scales. This plant is tall and therefore requires support. There are no particular soil requirements for growing gladioli. But they grow best in humus-rich soil with a neutral, slightly acidic or slightly alkaline acidity index. Fertile and moist soils are also preferred. The location is sunny and protected from winds. The tubers are planted in the soil after the threat of a return frost has passed. The planting depth should be 10-15 cm and the spacing should be the same. The bulbs should be dug up for the winter. The height of the plant is about 120 cm. Flowering period: July to September.
