Description
'Espresso' - dark burgundy, almost black flowers adding a mysterious element to the summer garden 18"-36".

An old-fashioned flower originally from Africa, that has reclaimed its place in the flower border and as a cut flower. Colorful blossoms alternating up tall stems, come in a myriad of colors and offer linear structure to the back of the garden. Glads prefer full sun, well drained soil and sometimes need to be staked to keep them from falling over. We've found that they often stand up nicely when planted deeply or when grown with other strong, sturdy plants like dahlias that act as a trellis for them. Plant at one week intervals to extend bloom season; top sized corms. Standard varieties are 18"-36" and smaller varieties are 12"-24". 14+cm bulbs. Whz 8-10; (7b when we plant deeper and mulch).
