Gladioli or Gladioluses ?

by Oldbabe August. 04, 2008 1394 views

singular: gladiola or gladiolus
plural: gladioli or gladioluses

I just call them glads.

GLADIOLUS / GLADIOLA MEANINGS: Strength of character, remembrance, infatuation, splendid beauty, give me a break, I'm really sincere, flower of the Gladiators, admiration, tells recipients that they pierce the heart like a sword.

Because the gladiolus has blade-shaped leaves, the name comes from the Latin word gladius which means sword. Also the birthflower for August.
