Plants – Gladiolus Arrangement Part I

I love gladiolus stems. They are very economical at this time of year. My local supermarket sells bunches of ten for under $2.00. They are a great flower for a Fourth of July flower arrangement.

I also took several reference photographs for future close-focus paintings. I am certainly getting a lot of mileage out of the money I spent.

Floral Arrangement Tips for Gladiolus: Cut stems on an angle with floral snips. This enables more of the stem to soak up water. To force gladiolus florets to open quickly pinch off the top tips.
