Grand in appearance and bold in color, fancy purple gladiolus stems add a captivating effect to endless floral displays. Native to South Africa, Europe, and the Mediterranean area, gladioli are typically available during the summer and into the early fall. These impressively tall blooms — our stems range from 3 to 4 feet tall — add stature to your DIY centerpieces, wedding ceremony décor, and other floral designs. There are many ways to incorporate them into your designs; fill a vase with bunches of them for a strong vertical composition, group them with other gladioli in different hues or use them to add height to arrangements consisting of short, full blooms to add visual interest. Six to eight blooms, ranging in width from 2 to 4 inches, come on each stem. These flowers can also be used to create corsages and boutonnieres.
Latin for “gladius,” meaning sword, gladioli carry with them the meaning of strength of character, integrity, and trust. Due to their sword-like shape, they also symbolize infatuation. When sent to an admirer, they convey the message “you pierce my heart.”

|Suggestions:||Gladiolus are slower to bloom than most flowers, so we recommend having them delivered about 4 days before your event. To speed up the blooming process, we recommend removing the top bud from each stem as soon as you receive them, rehydrate them in warm water, and placing them in indirect sunlight before arranging them.|
