Wedding Flowers:: Gladiolus

The flower's name is derived from the Latin for sword (gladius), after the shape of its leaves. Many of its varieties originated from Africa.
The gladiolus is a spiky stem with large florets that open in succession. The full stems can be used to add height to arrangements, while the individual florets are sometimes made into boutonnieres.
The gladiolus is available in wide spectrum of colors: white, yellow, orange, magenta, lavender and red.
