Another gladdie came into flower a couple of weeks ago:

Gladiolus miniatus, from NZAGS Seedex 2011,

This was grown from NARGS Seedex as G. permeabilis but is possibly Gladiolus wilsonii (a few blooms of Ixia polystachya in foreground)

Gladiolus maybe wilsoniiGladiolus maybe wilsoniiGladiolus maybe wilsonii

We got this Watsonia socium (syn Watsonia pillansii) from Glenbrook Bulb Farms (home of many fine dwarf daffodils) last year but didn't get a flower. This year the 2 corms have become a clump and have flowered profusely,

I'm always impressed by the gorgeous color range of the bulbs you grow, Fermi.
