Glads, as they are often called, are native to tropical and South Africa and are any plant of the genus Gladiolus. The plant has sword-shaped leaves with one-sided spikes of funnel-shaped, bright flowers.

It was from this history that the glad has also become known as the ‘sword lily’ and referred to as the flower of the Roman gladiators. The meaning attached to the flower is that of moral character.

Gladiola corms were used as a medicinal poultice that assisted in drawing splinters from skin. When powdered corms were mixed with goat’s milk it became a drink that aided in the relief of colic.
