Just beautiful. I tried an experiment with glads this year. I cut the leaves down in late fall, and put straw over the top. Sheets of straw, like you pull off a bale, not fluffed out. I removed it in the spring, and all my glads came back, and are just as large and nice as they were last year. I've been told I might get three years from them this way, then they will start going downhill. But three years I don't have to dig and replant is good.
