Patti, I tried to look at Brent & Becky's to see which blue one it was you got, but I can't get it at the moment, I keep getting an Error504 notice, timed out. I wonder if they are too busy! They do seem to stock some of the best varieties.
Wallaby1 I just checked today and the site is now working. The one I ordered is a very pale one called, surprisingly, 'Blues' - "very unusual color of pale blue, fading to white in the throat; late blooming" I ordered the Gladiolus species,'nanus 'Halley' and a couple of the dwarfs Flevo Jive, and Flevo Dancer.

There are only a couple I don't have or can't get from my wholesaler.
I am going to offer some bulbs for trade this spring. Can't ship until after May 1 because of chance of freezing.
I will post more later.
I caught the end of season sale last year (50% off) and got the variety Theresa. I potted them in a big cobalt blue pot and they are starting to emerge:) I'm going to try to catch that sale again this year--I believe it was around May or June...
