Gladiolus Sending Up New Leaves in Fall!

redace196o added on October 29, 2016 | Answered

I planted some bulbs I had lying around earlier this fall, and now, come to find out that a.) they're Gladiolus, and b.) they should have been planted in spring. Will the leaves sap the bulb and lead to their dying, or should I just ignore them and wait for spring (I live in a temperate zone 8 and glads don't need to be lifted in winter.) Help!

There is little to be done if the corms have broke dormancy. Just allow them to grow and die off naturally.
It could effect the flowering the next season.
