Is anyone doing any work with Gladiolus? As I mentioned on another post, some work has been done crossing Gladiolus and Acidanthera; this bigeneric hybrid was called Gladidanthera. The hybrids have the appearance of Gladiolus, but inherit some fragrance from the Acidanthera parent. This perfume is not typical of Acidanthera, however, but suggests Eucalyptus and Dianthus! I had the thought to cross this with Gladiolus tristis, another scented bloom, but without success. Acidanthera is closely related to Gladiolus, and may belong in the same Genus.
