You live in hardiness zone 6 and most gladiolus are hardy only to zones 7 or 8. The next time you buy, notice the hardiness zone of the glads. If you buy some that are not hardy in your area, just lift the corms in the fall and store them overwinter. Plant them in a sunnier area next time with good drainage.
