Mine bloom a pastel pink, not as intense as color shown in some catalogs. Very short, perfect for front of beds

UPDATE MAY 2014: I had forgotten I already grew this glad in my garden, but it may have rotted b/c I don't remember where it is. In fact, I was surprised to find this entry made in 2010. Anyhow, Holland Bulbs had them on sale so I got some more.l
