Delphiniums or Glads

cfmuehling(7b DC/MD burbs)November 14, 2005

Hi all!

I was given some bulbs that are one of the above. I have no idea which, except that they're pretty.

Are either of these fall planting bulbs, or should I hold off until Spring?

Delphiniums don't come in bulbs so must be glads. Glads I don't think are hardy here, so must be planted in spring.

I don't have any personal experience with glads but my neighbor grows lots of them and they do winter over.

Yes, Glads will overwinter here just fine. They will multiply, so unless you want to divide and make more, I'd just leave them in the ground...

Mine aren't in the ground; they're in a paper bag.

However, based upon this post, into the ground they're going to go.

Anyone have any experience with hot, unmitigating, God-awful, Southern Maryland sun? Oh - and the way things are going, no rain? Will Glads take that?

Thanks for the info,
