Gladiolus are a ladder to the heavens, reaching with their resplendent colors. Gladiolus symbolize faith and constancy, never forgetting and never giving up, believing in great blessings. Gladiolus flower works with the awakening and rising of kundalini - all chakras in sync.

They are a symbol of a "pierced" heart. Historically, the stem base (corms) of the gladiolus were made into a poultice for thorns and splinters and used for healing properties. The name gladiolus comes from the sword or “gladius” shape leaves.
