Ideal stem, leaf, and spike proportions
Efficient and productive
Milka is a variety that stands on its own. It is in great demand because of its unique color and strong characteristics when it comes to flower production and trade. Milka is part of the Floreals product group. This group consists of varieties with large spikes (more than 50% of the stem is made up of spike), a compact length, and slim leaves below the lowermost bud. These varieties are also selected for vase life. In production, gladioli from the Floreals group are efficient and productive, thanks to a relatively short forcing time, uniform flowering, and a low loss percentage. Milka is resistant to disease, heat, and bright sunlight. Milka's spike length makes it stand out. Another key feature of Milka is its good shelf life in cold stores. The photos of this variety will be supplemented and improved next summer with the flowers from our show garden for a clearer and more beautiful image.
