The graceful beauty of the species Gladiolus cannot be overstated, with "Orchid-like" being a frequently used
description.  The winter-growing species from Southern Africa offer the greatest range of color and form.  Growing
through the winter, they bloom in the spring and go dormant in summer, when they should be kept dry.  The
summer-growing species are largely from tropical and sub-tropical Africa.  They are generally larger plants and are
more suitable for the flower garden that receives rain or irrigation year round.  The species listed here are
winter-growers unless otherwise noted.   Zone  7-10.
