PRODUCT DETAILS

Tall and striking, our fancy lavender gladiolus stems will make their presence known in any floral design. Remarkably tall flowers (stem lengths range between 3 and 4 feet!) they create beautiful, lush centerpieces with extraordinary height. Love their look, but don’t need all those long stems? Six to eight blooms that range from 2 to 4 inches in width come on each stem, and are a favorite of DIY brides and party planners for fashioning into boutonnieres and corsages. The name gladiolus is derived from the Latin word “gladius,” which means sword. These towering flowers are native to South Africa, Europe and the Mediterranean area.  

In keeping with the sword theme, gladioli represent strength of character as well as trust and integrity. They also symbolize infatuation. When someone gifts another with a bouquet of gladioli, they’re sending the message “you pierce my heart.” While frequently used to create dramatic centerpieces and floor displays, many brides opt to carry them down the aisle, typically draped in their arms. 

Size: 3' to 4' stem length, 2"-4" blooms
Vase Life: 1 to 2 weeks depending on bud stage and environmental conditions.
Availability: Summer - Fall
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.
