Gladiolus "Summer Essentials Mixed"     

Barely planted 32 bulbs- very clayey soil, 3/15/14. Added some bone meal to soil and pine needle mulch. 32/32 bulbs are sprouting on 4/1. All flowers are hot red so far- 6/16 (5 stalks). 1 stalk is white w/ fuchsia tips & yellow center, 1 deep coral orange, 2 persimmon w/yellow center, 1 raspberry w/white & purple speckled center. 10 stalks bloomed and no new buds as of 6/30. Foliage returns but no flowers as of 2017- probably needs fertilizer. 2 stalks have raspberry buds 6/20/17. 5 total stalks all raspberry as of 7/30. No new buds.

This planting is in the Side Front South garden .
