Language of flowers : Gladiolus

                                 Aren’t you glad that gladioli bloom in every color but blue?




 
The long, lovely gladiolus is the birthday flower for August. A member of the iris family, "glads" are also called sword lilies because of their sharply pointed leaves and tall stalks of flowers with pointed tips. The Latin name for Gladiolus is gladius, a clear reference to the sword-swinging gladiators of ancient Rome. ~~
