I ordered a glad that looked just like this from Old House Gardens. It was called Chartreuse and Lilac I believe. They messed up the order and never sent this. I think it is just lovely.

Yes, itsn''t beautiful. And it looks so much like yours only perhaps a little darker.

After self-pollination of "Priscilla" and cross-pollination of non-emasculated "Mon Amour" with "Priscilla", deliberately approving of some self-pollination to occurr, I obtained masny, many seeds. The 3 smaller scapes on the right side are from "Mon Amour". If all the seeds germinate, I should finally have a garden full of Gladiolas in subtle pastel colors!

Please do send pictures. It sounds like it will be lovely. And such an accomplishment. I rather prefer the deep wine colors, pure white, deep yellow...but then I have no 'fashion' sense when it comes to garden flowers.
