Michael - absolutely beautiful.  I have been wanting to grow Gladiolous gracilis.  Can you tell me how I may obtain seeds or corms?

  Back in 2003, I mentioned on the list that I'd just had the first flower
  from a hybrid bulb I'd crossed: Gladiolus gracilis x G. priorii.  Cathy
  Craig suggested that I post a picture to the wiki, but I didn't have a
  digital camera at the time, so I never followed through.

  In the years since, I thought I had lost the hybrid.  But this week there
  was a flower in a pot whose tag had been lost, and sure enough it was that
  hybrid again.  This time I have a digital camera, so I posted a photo to the
  wiki.  It's at the bottom of the Gladiolus hybrids page:

  Gladiolus gracilis is pale blue, and G. priorii is scarlet.  Their offspring
  has an appealing dark magenta color that's washed through the flower like
  watercolor paint.  It's a pretty little thing.
