Forever Bulbs

Our gladiolus variety groups

At Forever Bulbs, we develop, select, and breed all our own varieties of gladiolus. Just name a color, shape, look, or specific feature – you can bet we have a gladiolus in our range that meets your needs. We offer over 200 different breeds at the moment, and we’re busier than ever developing new ones.

Our range is divided into two main categories: dry sales and cut flowers. Two completely different applications that call for specific characteristics, which we have carefully selected for during breeding. These categories are divided into product groups to make it easy to better target your purchasing.

Flamencos – a unique wavy flower shape

Our Flamencos immediately set themselves apart by their striking shape. The flowers have wavy edges and exceptionally sturdy petals. They combine elegance with rousing Flamenco vibes and colors.

Bordiolus – a short border gladiolus

Our Bordiolus line consists of breeds with a height of 60 to 90 cm tall. They’re a lot more compact than the average gladiolus. With their wide array of colors and shapes, Bordiolus is perfect for any type of garden. We develop new breeds in this product group every year.

Pickem – perfect for picking

The Pickem line was named for how well this variety lends itself to picking. Not only are these gladioli used in professional flower cultivation, but they also offer a long and luxurious vase life. This allows consumers to pick the best quality gladioli straight from their garden, to decorate their home with or gift to friends or family.

Biondly – grown in accordance with SKAL

The breeds in the Biondly product group are grown organically in accordance with SKAL standards. This means no chemical fertilizers or crop protection are used in the cultivation of these varieties. We take the lessons we learn from our organic cultivation and try to apply them to our regular gladioli cultivation, so we can reduce the amount of crop protection we have to use.

Floreals – the very best quality

These varieties have been bred to meet the most stringent criteria in the industry. The Floreals are unique because of their compact height of 110 to 130 cm. A minimum of 50% of the stems is made up of spike and short leaves. They have an amazing shelf life and vase life, hold up wonderfully in cold stores, and are resistant to diseases in the field. The Floreals are the absolute showpieces of our cultivation and are the product of over 30 years of breeding.

Multicoloros – a festival of colors

The breeds in the Multicoloros group are some of the liveliest we have in our range. They vary in color from soft and subtle combinations to bold contrasts. Multicoloros are selected based on growers’ demands. That means these are varieties and bulbs you can rely on.

Gladdies – shorter-stemmed gladioli for perfect bouquets

Gladdies breeds are of a compact size and especially convenient as cut flowers. At 60 to 80 cm tall, they are perfect for any vase or bouquet. Thanks to stems that are considerably shorter than your average gladiolus, the handling and logistics cost of these breeds are a lot lower.
