Hi Roland,

you've probably seen it, but Jenny Archibald offers them in her last list from two different locations.

Roland, there's an image on the PBS wiki Wiki.  You should send Jane McGary a note she may  be able to help you.

Roland, I have a couple of corms. If I am lucky I may get seeds this year, if I do you can have some so long as you remind me in the summer. Mine came from Janis.

Hello Peter

This would be great
when do you think the seeds are ripe

If you like I collect seeds from Gladiolus byzantinus for you
or in the autumn I have some bulbs

Hello Roland,
This is my Gladiolus atroviolaceus, the picture was taken on 8th June 2010 so I expect any seeds would be ready in August.
The second picture is what I am growing as Gladiolus ssp byzantinus- is it the same as yours? I have a lot of it but I am always glad to have new forms!

My G. byzanthinus looks similar

your Gladiolus atroviolaceus looks a good colour

Dear Friends,

Those of you who are growing Gladiolus atroviolaceus:  What kind of climate do you live in?  And how do you grow it?

Best regards,

 Welcome Jacob!  From elsewhere in the Forum  there  is this advice .....

Quote from: Oron Peri on April 01, 2010, 04:24:45 PM

    One of my favorites, G. atroviolaceus is a common species in many parts of Jordan, mainly in cultivated fields.
    Usually it takes G. italicus habitat in the semidesert areas.

Quote from: Ragged Robin
Oron, why is it found mainly in cultivated fields?  The colour is so intense and glorious, a really lovely Gladiolus.

Quote from: Oron Peri

There are a few bulbous species that have adapted for growing in cultivated fields around the Mediterranean, among them Narcissus tazetta, a few species of Ornithogalum, colchicum, Arum, Bellevalia, Gladiolus and others.
Most of them have adapted to this habitat by developing very deep bulbs so that the tractors ploughing do not get them.

I can think of a few benefits from growing in this habitat, first there is very little competition from other plants, than the soil is being ploughed yearly to make good drainage and pushing the seeds deep down, finally it seems that the commercial fertilizers helps too.

Also,  loads of help here, much of it from the USA.....
