Delphiniums or Glads

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.

RE: Delphiniums or Glads

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

RE: Delphiniums or Glads

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...

RE: Delphiniums or Glads

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,
