Peter Pears Gladiolus brings its red-centered, apricot hued blooms to a mid-summer garden brightening and enhancing the whole, while being spectacular on its own. One of our favorite accent colors in the summer garden is orange. Orange makes lavender sing, Penstemon smile, and Salvia swoon!

A great border plant or garden backdrop, Peter Pears Gladiolus stands 56-60 inches, tall with strap-like green leaves adding a strong vertical element as well. Elegant as a cut flower, it’s a true garden star. Plant in full sun in well-drained soil. Hardy in zones 8-11, they can be grown in cooler zones as annuals.
