Too bad they are so bright and big and beautiful but don't smell like

If I were going to work on the summer ones, I think I'd try for thrip
resistance first.

Because of the thrip issue, I haven't grown summer glads much.  Didn't
realize they had no scent.  From my amateur point of view, it seems like
that ought to be an easy characteristic to pursue -- some of the
winter-bloomers are very fragrant (Gladiolus tristis, for example -- athough
you have to smell it at night).
