Is anyone growing Gladiolus aureus?

I was just reading about the status of this beautiful little flower.  They
say online that it's down to a single location with as few as ten plants


I have one bulb of it, which finally (after about a decade) got happy enough
last year to make two offsets.  However, I have only the one clone, and it
is not self-fertile.


Is anyone else growing this bulb, and if so, would you like to exchange
pollen this spring?  I'd like to produce some seed and spread the plant
around among us.  It's fairly easy to grow in my climate.
