Ideal stem, leaf, and spike proportions
Efficient and productive
Heavy stems from 6/8 and higher
Stormy is a new variety that meets the standards 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. Stormy is resistant to disease, heat, and bright sunlight. Stormy's spike length and weight make it stand out. This gladiolus is a hit on the Dutch flower market with its XXL flowers, and growers love working with the variety due to its robustness and uniform maturity. 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.
