Dear all:
         Summer growing Gladioli can be fairly hardy while dormant provided 
they are VERY dry then. Many of them receive hard frost during their winter 
dormancy but again there is not a drop of rain for that season. If they 
receive waterings while dormant there will be a death of the roots that will 
produce a fungus explosion ascending up into the corms and these will die.
