The seeds I get are fat for a Gladiolus and the wing is definately there
though not huge compared to some types of Gladiolus. The colour is dark
reddish brown, sometimes paler on the papery bit (the wing). I have never
rememberd to sow any but I am fairly sure the few good looking seeds which
I get would be viable. They are not as big as 4mm in width, perhaps in
length as they are oval
