Those are beautiful flowers, Fabrice!  Where did you get them?

When were the photos taken, and what part of the world do you garden in?
That will help with identification.

I don't have access to my Gladiolus book today, so all I can do is give a
couple of guesses.  I'm sure others can do better.

Species 4 looks like one of the bluebell species, which are hard for me to
tell apart (because of their variation).  Could be something like G.
gracilis or G. caeruleus or  G. violaceo-lineatus.

Species 3:  I don't know what that one is, but I want it!
