I agree

And I think its name is Donatella.

It does look like Italian Gladiolus (Gladiolus italicus)



The only photo I could find of a Gladiola named Donatella has different bloom shape and is a paler peachy-pink color: https://www.vws-flowerbulbs.nl...

LOL, I'm old and blonde and not into fashion, although I have heard of Donatella Versace ... so the joke is on me! Green Grin!
