I notice the absence of the word "good" before "luck".

Is it possible that every garden falls into one of two categories, excessively 
friendly to allium and hostile to allium? Is there no middle ground?

The unnamed G.n. is one I've seen somewhere, but don't have the name. I will 
keep my eyes open. I'm pretty sure it's NOT "Atom".

PS: Mary Sue's white Gladiolus x colvillei illustrated a little ways above her 
unnamed G. nanus cultivar is "The Bride".
