Flowers take off in West Lafayette garden

| September 18, 2013

WEST LAFAYETTE – David Robinson’s yard is filled with beautiful flowers, but one type towers above them all.

“I’ve never had a gladiolus above six feet,” said the West Lafayette resident.

At least eight of his gladioli are five to just a little over six feet tall and Robinson believes the weather and the compost he used help the flowers grow.

“I get a lot of compliments on my flowers,” Robinson said. “It keeps me busy since I’m retired. I’m out here every day until dark.”
