Along with 'Boone' one of the hardiest glads. Soft yellow flowers with red marks toward the throat on sturdy stems. Easy to grow in well drained soil, making nice clumps.

This small, graceful glad stunned us by surviving 22? below zero one winter here. Reliably perennial in zones 6-9S/11WC - and in much of zone 5, our customers tell us - it multiplies year after year without care, and grows true from seed. Collected at an old homesite in NC, it's an early form of the "Maid of the Mist" glad (G. primulinus, now lumped into G. dalenii, first offered in the US by Thorburn in 1908), a kissing cousin of the equally wonderful 'Boone', and our Spring 2008 Bulb of the Year.

Gladiolus 'Carolina Primrose' was discovered at an old abandoned NC residence, a tribute to its amazing durability. For us, this extremely hardy form (or hybrid) of Gladiolus dalenii var. primulinus makes a fast-multiplying clump that produces 3' tall flower spikes from mid-June through mid-July in NC. The floral spikes are laden with soft butter yellow flowers darkening toward the throat, where you will also find small reddish-brown stripes...that's stripe throat, not strep.
