Flower of the Day – Gladiolus

***

I always liked these flowers, and I learned something new about them. While looking up the correct spelling I saw that I’ve been thinking wrong about it. I thought it was spelled and said as ‘gladiolas’ …with an a. But, no…it is with the letter ‘u’…gladiolus. Also it is sometimes called the sword flower. Interesting. šŸ™‚

  1. I think I knew that, but then I would still call them gladiolas and not gladioluses. LOL They’re so striking. My neighbor grows rows of them, and I enjoy them šŸ™‚

    • I’ll bet the neighbor’s flowers look amazing! …haha gladioluses …sounds funny. I think I saw that they could be called gladioli if there’s more than one, but that just sounds wrong, too. šŸ™‚
