    Flowering earlier than many of the taller gladioli, 'Robinetta' produces clusters of magenta-pink flowers, each with paler markings, from early summer. Their soft structure makes them well suited to herbaceous borders, while their low-growing habit means they are quite happy in pots and containers.

  • Garden care: Plant corms 10cm deep and 10 - 15cm apart, on a bed of sharp sand to aid drainage. In frost-prone areas, lift them when the leaves turn yellow-brown and store the corms in a dry, frost-free place over winter.
