The gladioli flower gets its name from the Latin word gladius, meaning sword. Another name they are called is sword lily. Interesting the flower‘s meaning can mean either a symbol of sincerity or some level of exasperation. My husband bought these for me from the farmers‘s market today, hmmmm ,,

Beautiful blossoms! Nice work!
Do you think your husband was really aware of the "symbolic significance" of the species, or just thought they were beautiful & that you would love and appreciate them? smile
