Gladioli Pink Parrot
Pack of 5

Gladioli Pnk Parrot (Gladioli x hortulanus) has beautiful rosie pink flowers with a white throat.

Adding a splash of colour and elegance, Gladioli provide a beautiful show when flowering out in the garden or being enjoyed in a vase or flower arrangement. Known for their tall, striking spikes of flowers, and with a wonderful selection of colours that can brighten any garden space, Gladioli are the perfect tall accent for gardens.

Easy to plant and care for these bulbs produce beautiful blooms that are perfect for garden borders or cut flower arrangements. With their long-lasting flowers and dramatic appearance, Gladioli are an excellent choice for gardeners looking to make a bold statement, and to those who love to have fresh flowers inside. Flowering during Spring in warmer regions and throughout Summer in cooler temperate regions, Gladioli can be planted every 4-6 weeks throughout the season to provide a staggered display of colour.

For best results select a sunny position and plant into a well drained fertile soil or a large pot or tub containing a premium potting mix. Regular fertilising with a complete fertiliser and watering during dry periods will ensure a fabulous display throughout the season. We recommend protection from strong winds or staking plants to support them in maintaining an upright growth habit.

Supplied as dormant bulbs.

  • Order Split Fee: Some items may be delayed due to climatic or growing habits prevent them from being harvested at the time of being offered for purchase.  You will be offered a choice to wait until all items on your order are available or to receive what is currently available for an additional freight charge of $5.00.
  • We continue to maintain the simplest form of postage costs for the large variety of products we range, however in occasional circumstances of oversized orders and/or delivery location, the cost of freight can significantly impact delivery of an order therefore we reserve the right to refuse the order or contact the customer to discuss freight options and pricing.

Orders containing products from two different seasons (eg Rose or spring bulb pre-orders) that require separate deliveries will incur two delivery charges at the relevant rates (unless a free freight offer applies). A $5.00 Quarantine Inspection Surcharge applies in addition to the Delivery Charge for orders delivered to Tasmania, Northern Territory and Western Australia due to the increased complexity of quarantine requirements.

As quarantine inspections apply to each delivery, 2 quarantine charges will apply where orders contain products from different seasons.   *Please note that if you order large items (eg Patio, Standard or Weeping Roses, Fruit Trees) you must specify a street address for the delivery address. StarTrack Express generally do not deliver to PO Boxes or RSD addresses so your order will be held until a suitable address is obtained. In rural areas, StarTrack may deliver to physical addresses such as general stores that act as Australia Post agencies but we suggest you check with them first. Where ”Free Delivery” vouchers apply to an order, details of the voucher should be entered in the “Your message to us” field. Orders (except Pre-orders) are normally despatched within 7-14 working days from the time of ordering during busy periods. Delivery times may be extended during peak periods (typically following the release of the latest catalogue), extended public holidays, if extreme weather conditions are not suitable for live plant transport or as detailed in the product description.
Individual items may be back-ordered to avoid delaying the delivery of other items. Please allow additional delivery time for orders to Tasmania, Northern Territory and Western Australia due to quarantine restrictions.

 

Please note: Some orders may not be possible to parts of Australia due to quarantine and some items may carry unique delivery charges. Check full delivery policy.

Common Name: GLADIOLI
Botanical Name: Gladiolus x hybrid
Family Name: Iridaceae
Plant Type: Corm
Size: 1.5m H x 15cm W
Positioning: Full Sun, Wind Protection
Planting Width: 10cm Depth: 7cm
General Information: An elegant cut flower, Gladioli can be planted late Autumn, Winter and Spring. In cold climates plant the corms after the danger of frost is over. Gladioli flower around 100 days after planting.
Soil: Well drained light soil is best; improve heavy soils by adding organic matter. Plant corms with flat side facing down.
Watering: Do not over water however keep moist during the growing period.
Fertilising: Fertilise prior to planting.
Pruning: Corms can be dug 4–6 weeks after flowering or as soon as the leaves yellow. After digging, store in a cool, dark, dry, airy place and dust with an insecticide to prevent thrips.
Dislike: Frost, fresh animal manure, boggy ground.
Pests: Aphids and thrips. Dust with an insecticide if thrip damage is noticed (streaking of leaves, damage of flowers), and if problem persists, make sure new bulbs are planted in a different part of the garden. NB: Extreme heat can cause similar symptoms to thrip damage on flowers.
Ideal for tall background colour and perfect cut flowers.
Tips: Pick flowers by taking a knife down along the stem then twisting across the stem at the required length. This method will help ensure that the foliage is left, allowing the bulb to continue growing. For long vase life, flowers should
be picked as the first floret opens.

Legend


Establish which coloured region you live in and then consider the varieties listed as typically suited to that area. The Australian Climate Guide map is intended as a guide only as climatic conditions vary between specific locations. Factors such as local altitude, wind and the proximity of hills, mountains and bodies of water can cause variations from the generalised climate map. Note also that although a plant may be listed as suitable for a particular region, it may still require protection from extremes such as frost or strong winds. You should also consider its requirements for sun, shade and water.

Remember that you can often extend the range of plants that you can grow by creating micro-climates within your garden. Planting under trees, beside brick walls or in the shelter of a building, on high or low points in the garden can all have an effect. Even planting by a pond or surrounded by rocks can be used to advantage. Part of the joy of gardening can be experimenting and nothing is more pleasing that achieving success with a plant that is not usually seen in your area.

The map is based on Australian Bureau of Meteorology 30 year climatology data from 1961-1990. The zones are based on both temperature and humidity:

  • Tropical – hot humid summer .
  • Mild Tropical – warm humid summer
  • Semi-arid – hot dry summer, cold winter
  • Arid – hot dry summer, cold winter
  • Temperate – warm summer, cool winter
  • Cool – mild-warm summer, cool winter
