I'm calling these tree trunk gladiolas. They are so big, most of them over four feet tall. I guess I should cut some down for market. I told Stuart if we can't sell these on the 4th of July weekend, red-hot-tall, I'm done with them. I just say that though. I couldn't resist growing them if I tried. I'd like to have a party where I don't have to do any work and have a big huge vase full of these as the centerpiece. I'd use them as a weapon against anyone who says "wow, you still have 2 months to go?!"
