(aka: Homoglad) Gladiolus 'Buttery Cheeks' is a unique twist on a garden favorite. With foliage that resembles a rain lily and flowering-size corms the size of a shelled peanut, these easy to grow, winter-growing Gladiolus tristis hybrids are not your grandmother's glads. Gladiolus 'Buttery Cheeks' emerges for us in mid-October. The fast-offsetting clumps are topped, starting for us in early- to mid-April with thin, but sturdy 2' tall stalks, each loaded with creamy yellow flowers and highlighted by stunning markings...yellow on the lower petals and streaks of cinnamon above. Our "Cheeks" series of gladiolus are the earliest glads we've grown, starting 1-2 months before most others...perfect for the rock garden or a similar small space. While flowering-size corms are miniscule compared to normal gladiolus, each pot contains quite a few for a nice show.
