Hardy Nathalie Nanus Nathalie
The blousy blooms of Gladiolus ‘Nanus Nathalie’ are an adorable shade of pale, cherry blossom pink, with a drop of dark crimson on the lower petals. Gladioli are often called ‘Painted Ladies’, and ‘Nathalie’ seems all made-up with a slick of red lipstick, and a dab of blusher on her cheeks. ‘Nanus’ Gladioli have been carefully bred to be compact, strong, and straight, rarely requiring staking. The convenient height makes them well suited to containers as well as herbaceous borders. This variety makes a gorgeous cut flower, with the flowers unfurling gradually in the vase for a long-lasting display.
For early flowering, hardy Gladiolus, choose a warm and sunny, well-drained location.
Plant corms with the pointy side up, 8-10cm deep and 15cm apart in the soil. Provide consistent watering after planting and during dry spells, ensuring soil remains moderately moist.
Plant corms at intervals, every two weeks from spring until early summer for a staggered display.
Robust stems of elegant, sword-shaped blooms rise to heights of 60-75cm between June and August.
After flowering, remove spent and withered stalks and foliage and apply a mulch to the soil in late autumn.
