Do You Know What this is?

This was apparently a stowaway in my Dutch Iris order. It is a delicate appearing bloom, and I would like to order some for fall. TIA.

Could they be mini glads? I am not sure do to the picture. I have several but not up and blooming yet here. I like them because I don't have to dig and store.

They are nice, I wonder if there's any chance they are hardy further North.... guess I'll have to check into that. I'm guessing probably not since the mini glads didn't make it when I tried them.

They do look like some sort of gladiolus. Here's a link that might help.

That is exactly it kato. I ordered some last fall and they started blooming in the last couple of days. I think I am going to love them. They are so delicate looking. Judy

Gladioli byzantium. I tried them, and loved them, but they petered out after a year or two in my garden.
