I'll dig these up and plant them again next year, but for all the hoops I jumped through to get some this year, I'm not convinced it was worth it. Until about a week ago our entire summer had been predominantly cloudy and very wet, so I'm sure this had an impact on my plants' growth, but plants flopped even worse than their taller counterparts, and they developed distorted stems. My plants had early morning shade this year, but next year I'll choose a spot in full, all-day sun.

Plants are perhaps a bit more than two-thirds the height of standard glads. They're a bit shorter in stem length, and distance between buds is much less, giving the bloom stalk a rather cramped appearance. In comparison of the two, grown in the same year, I prefer the gracefulness of the the full-sized plants rather than this tightly compacted style of gladiolus.
