Gladioli - Colour Variation

Posted by avisrapax (My Page) on

I was wondering if anyone could tell me if it was normal for gladioli to exhibit colour variation like this or if it's indicative of a problem / virus etc.

I've grown these same plants for two years - Gladioli Laguna a 'green' flower with pink at the edges. Last year a few flowers showed a little more pink in the throat or on one single petal but this year more of them seem to be blotchy =(

These look wonderful, this "blotchiness" included!
This is just natural color variation.
I am expecting the same for Gladiolus "Mon Amour" that these will bloom for me during the next days - and where the extent of pink blotch on yellow basis color might vary, considerably.
I assume that the final color pattern depends on the environmental conditions:
Light, temperature and, who knows, even the air humidity might contribute.
