Gladiolus Flower Meaning
August’s birth flower is the spiky gladiolus. I’ll admit that the showy petals and sharp shape made me overlook these blooms in the past. I learned that gladiolus means “sword” lily (tying back to the ancient gladiators’ swords). They symbolize strength of character and can pierce your heart with their beauty.

If you’re like me, it’s nice to have a break from staring at screens. That’s why start all my designs on paper. Then, I digitize them and turn them into printable art. Each piece is created to be collected and shared.
I release my favorite designs as free phone wallpapers. If you liked this design, be sure to follow me on Instagram @verdera.me and Facebook /daniverderame. I hope you enjoy this wallpaper inspired by the aster bloom.
