Hi Jim McK.,

Several years ago we had a discussion of the identity of Gladiolus 
x-gandavensis in the former IBS BULB list.  There was not a complete 
consensus, but most folks seemed to think it was the same as Gladiolus 
dalenii primulinus.  Seed I received as primulinus bloomed this year, and 
looks a lot like my "x-gandavensis" which are also in bloom now.

What species went into making those original gandavensis hybrids?  The 
yellow glads I have blooming look like light yellow dalenii.
