Gladiola Leaves Have Brown Tips And White Streaks

Question From: CaƱon City, Colorado, United States
Q: Nancy, my first year at this. Why do my Glads leaves have brown tips. Others have white streaks down them.

A: The brown tips are probably a result of excessive heat and lack of moisture. The streaks may be a virus. There is nothing to be done about the virus. The good news is it is plant specific and will not effect other plants in your garden. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
