I love gladiolas. They are an old fashioned flower, but so lovely in the garden. This photo is of gladiola buds. I think the flowers were fully open about a day or two later.
I rarely cut the flowers in my garden as I prefer to enjoy them by looking at them from within the house or while in in the garden, but if I were to cut some flowers gladiolas would be a good choice. Especially if they were buds that were just opening like this one. The cut gladiolas would continue to open in the vase and would last about a week.
Do you cut flowers from your garden? What’s your favorite type to bring indoors?
