I'm very sorry for the trouble.  Those corms were from a pot that bloomed
the previous summer, so I know there were Ixia trifolia in the pot.  But if
you're seeing Gladiolus leaves, they you probably have Gladiolus.  If that's
the case, they are probably G. tristis.  I've had problems with them setting
seeds into nearby pots.  Most likely what happened is that some G. tristis
seed blew into the pot and had germinated but not bloomed yet, and I mistook
them for Ixia corms (you'd think I would know the $)(&@ difference!).

When they bloom, please let me know what they actually are.  Same thing
applies to everyone else -- if I gave you something that's misidentified,
please let me know so I can do better in the future.



PS: Roland, please send me your mailing address and I'll send you some I.
trifolia corms this summer.  And I'll make sure they are the real thing.
