If correctly cared for, she can bloom between 6 and 10 days when displayed in a vase.  She, Lady Gladiolus is available in a huge range of colors, including apricot, blue, burgundy, pink, gold, red, orange, and white, as well as multicolored varieties.

If you have her in your garden, possibly invite yourself to embrace her energy and bringing them closer to you by preparing her for your vase. So in the early morning or evening, prepare your heart use a  lovely sharp knife or scissors to prepare to cut the stems, leaving at least four leaves on the plant to nourish the corm and guarantee for you her gorgeous blooms next planting season. Cut her lower stems diagonally, place them in a bucket of warm water, and set the bucket in a cool dry place for 2 hours before arranging flowers.

Before arranging your unmistakable super stars , strip away her leaves that would fall below the waterline. Fill a clean vase with water and add floral food to the water. Re-cut  her stem ends on the diagonal and place her stems in vase. Set the clean vase away from direct sunlight and heat sources.

Lengthen her superstars life by giving her daily care. Every day, change her water and add floral food. She really appreciates it. It really works. Cut her stems back by 1 or 2 inches and pick off any of her wilted flowers to keep her arrangement tidy and to allow the unfurling upper buds to take center stage.

Keep smiling. She will keep sharing with you feelings of  joy. Keep turning to her this summer as every summer and notice what you notice.
