Gladiolus

Gladiola is one of my favorite flowers. They look so gorgeous when they bloom.  Photos were taken from my garden.
"Gladiolus (from Latin, the diminutive of gladius, a sword) is a genus of perennial bulbous flowering plants in the iris family (Iridaceae).  It is sometimes called the 'Sword lily', but usually by its generic name (plural gladioli, gladioluses, glads). info source is Wikepedia

    Blessings,

  2. I have always loved Glads too. They were one of my Daddy's favorites and he had some really gorgeous ones. I've never had much luck though growing them in South Carolina. Have a great weekend, Nan

  5. these are so lovely, I envy you for having them; used to years ago, then moved and never replanted. Just moved again last week and I plan on having a lovely fall garden and then more for next season, will bring back the gladioli!!! Hope you have a fun Pink Saturday!

    Did you know that if you cut the topbud off, all of the rest buds blooms at the same time.
