{floral friday #67}

Welcome to this week’s {floral friday}!

These little pretties where a gift from my mom when she came over to visit along with my grandma this past Saturday. I love Gladioli in every shape and color — especially these miniature Gladioli! Danke, Mama! :)

A few facts about the Gladioli:

  • The genus Gladiolus comprises 260 species, 250 of which are native to sub-Saharan Africa, mostly South Africa.
  • The Gladiolus flower signifies remembrance. It also expresses infatuation, telling the receiver that he or she pierces the heart. It also stands for strength of character, faithfulness and honor. {source}
  • Gladioli are grown from bulb-like structures called corms that are planted in the ground in early spring and bloom throughout most of July and August.
  • Some parts of gladiolus plant are poisonous if ingested. {source}

I’m partying here! ♥

    Thanks for the lesson today. I really am short on flower knowledge. It’s so fun to not only see how pretty the flowers are, but to hear some history about them. Fun!
