dc.description.abstractThe gladiolus was once known as sword lily. Improved types were first developed from crosses of several species native to the Mediterranean area of Europe. Later discovery of African species led to crosses, which produced the forerunners of the attractive large-flowered types we know today. Although 'glads,' as they are commonly called, are used to a limited extent for landscape effect, their chief value is for cut flowers. Their wide range of colors, sizes and flower types makes them particularly useful for flower arrangements They are spectacular flowers for exhibition in flower shows and are a specialty of many amateur growers.eng
