Gladiolus ‘Mary’

Raised in England by John Bidwill before coming to Australia and only listed in the catalogues in 1843.  No description is extant but it was certainly a gandavensis hybrid.  It was probably lost quite early and does not appear to have been used for hybridising in Australia.

Only listed in the 1843 catalogue although Bidwill makes a number of references to ‘my Mary’ in subsequent letters.
