looking for a certain gladiolus

I am looking for a gladiolus that is a peach with a little yellow and an edge of orange with a purple stamen. I have been searching books and the internet but haven't found it. The blooms were in a funeral arrangement for my mother (her favorite colors were orange and yellow). I would love to purchase some bulbs for my garden next summer. Anyone know what the name might be or where I can search? Thanks [perplexed]

Hi fairierose,

Is this the one? It is the only one I recall being similar to your description.

These two are closest to your description that I have. No purple stamens though.

Getting old is the pits. But it sure beats the alternative. My Blog

The 2 peachy ones are close but not quite the same. I'll keep on file though because they are certainly beautiful. [thumb]

I was just thinking the same thing. They sure are pretty. I don't have an answer to your question either fairierose. I just thought I would stop in since I have a few glads so I'm always interested in the topic.

Have you thought to check with the florist who had the arrangement done?I have a friend in IN who works as a florist&He ID'd a flower for my mom that was in an arrangement,but he also was able to supply her with a supplier who sold the flower.(it was a lilly& escart? escart was the foliage plant)Your glad sounds pretty though.i like the multi-colored ones.Maybe do a google for bi-color glads web& images search.pinetreeseeds.com has some bi-color glads,but actually list more in their book than online.here is bloomingbulb.coms page...........

I think I have one of the peach, orange, & yellow gladiolus you want. I do not yet know what the name is, but will try to find out and let you know. I have several large pictures of it, if you want to follow the links to see it better. I'm attaching a smaller image, but I think it's large enough for you to see it's the one you want. Feel free to email me if you want to inquire directly.  -
