Hi Judy,
I noticed this in last year's catalog as well and have no idea what was "wrong" with O magnum, which I do grow. So far it does well, is not invasive, and does not appear to have a virus or any other problem. I value it for its late flowers and easy culture.

In NY where O magnum is in spike, most spring bulbs are finished but not the Gladiolus byzantinus that I got from Bill the Bulb Baron last fall which are in full bloom. They are the "real thing" with very vividly colored flowers and did not appear bothered by our record cold in early winter.  I also have grown what I think is G. italicus from seeds, they are starting too but are much smaller with much thinner petals. Crinum bulbispermum also has begun to bloom in the gardens as well, though their bloom appears to be more staggered than it was the year before. 




Anyone know A) why O. magnum is no longer being grown, and / or B) know 
anything about O. ponticum Sochii



Judy, once again infused with bulb lust
