Ushering in a symphony of colours, the Gladiolus Oracle emerges from the earth, ready to transform your garden into an artist's palette. This captivating variety boasts a mesmerising tri-colour combination, blending vibrant yellow hues with rich maroon and violet streaks, creating a captivating spectacle that will undoubtedly captivate the hearts of gardeners and onlookers alike.
Standing tall and proud, the Gladiolus Oracle reaches heights of 0.9 to 1.2 metres (3 to 4 feet), adorned with sturdy stems that can effortlessly support its dense flower spikes. These spikes, reminiscent of fiery torches, illuminate the garden with their brilliance, each holding an abundance of blooms that gracefully cascade down their length.
The Gladiolus Oracle is not only visually stunning but also surprisingly easy to cultivate. This versatile flower thrives in full sun and well-drained soil, rewarding gardeners with a burst of colour during the peak gardening season. Its long vase life makes it an excellent choice for cut flowers, adding a touch of drama to indoor arrangements.
To cultivate these captivating blooms, plant the corms in the spring, approximately 10 to 15 centimetres (4-6 inches) deep and 15 centimetres (6 inches) apart. Water regularly, especially during the growing season, and fertilise every few weeks to encourage abundant blooms. As the flower spikes reach maturity, provide support with stakes to prevent them from toppling over. Once the blooms have faded, allow the foliage to die back naturally before digging up the corms and storing them in a cool, dry place over the winter.
The Gladiolus Oracle finds its place in a variety of garden settings, adding a touch of drama to borders and containers. Its striking tri-colour blooms make it a captivating cut flower, perfect for adding a touch of elegance to indoor arrangements. Pollinators, drawn to its vibrant colours, flutter around its blooms, adding life and movement to the garden.
