Height: 60" tall
Origin: South Africa
From South African seed, we selected this amazing form of the durable and easy-to-grow Gladiolus dalenii var. dalenii. Gladiolus 'Halloweenie' produces 5' tall branched flower spikes of intense scarlet-orange flowers, each with a bright yellow throat. The flowering show doesn't start here until Halloween...slightly earlier in warmer climates. This is a truly tacky plant for a tacky holiday...get one today!
Gladiolus 'Halloweenie' is very late blooming and such a treat when it manages to bloom out fully. Cut flower stalks if a hard frost is predicted. They usually manage to open in a vase indoors even if they haven't yet started to show color.
Bloom Time: Fall
