Variegated Gladiolus

Dear All;
	I have previously admitted my addiction to plants with 
variegated foliage; any kinds from trees to annual and especially 
bulbs. Does any know or grow, even seen a picture of a Gladiolus with 
variegated foliage?

	I have a mix of hardy Glads mostly G. italicus and selections 
(comunis, byzantinus etc.),. One plant has just sent up its first 
leaf very distinctly adorned with half dozen bright yellow stripes. I 
doubt this will last, but it got me thinking. After searching my 
variegated library and the WWW I found nothing.

	Appreciate any vague recollections or solid info.
