This breathtaking duo is extremely easy to recreate. It includes 2 fabulous dwarf Gladioli, 'Charming Beauty' and 'Elvira', both enjoying long-lasting blossoms, up to 3-4 weeks, in early summer. Their eye-catching flowers (up to 7 per stem) grow on loose spikes (2-3 spikes per corm) that do not require staking and are adorned by narrow, deep-green sword-shaped leaves. Low maintenance, this mix is a feast for the eyes!
