gladioli, Roman Gladiators

Gladioli are great flowering summer bulbs for gardens and later they make wonderful cut flowers for the home.  Commonly known as glad it is over, winter is over. They bloom in spring in Auckland, and after the drab winter, it's "Glad it is over."

The Gladiolus flower is the birth flower for August. Gladiolus represented the Roman Gladiators, before the African Gladioli became popular in the West.
