Our August Special

Gladiolas

The gladiolus features a tall, striking stalk of blooms, and proudly fills the summer with beautiful, bright colors. Though you might have already fallen in love with August’s flower, here are five fun facts to seal the deal.

  1. What’s in a Name? Translated literally a gladiolus is a little sword in Latin. Gladioli have also been called xiphium, which comes from the Greek word, xiphios, which also means sword. Thus, alternate names are sword or corn lilies.
  2. Healing Powers – the corm (stem base) has been used as a bandage and to extract thorns or splinters. The corms were also powdered and mixed with goat’s milk to soothe symptoms of colic. But be careful, other parts are poisonous if eaten, and certain species cause irritation or allergic reaction when handled. Today we primarily use the gladiolus as a decorative flower in gardens and bouquets.
  3. Choices, Choices – Originally only about seven varieties of gladiolus existed naturally in South Africa. From these seven original species, more than 10,000 cultivars (or cultivated varieties) of the gladiolus exist today in varied heights, sizes, types of blooms, colors of blooms, and patterns of blooms. There is a gladiolus to complement every garden and every bouquet out there.
  4. More than Words – Gladioli express strength of character, remembrance, faithfulness, and moral integrity. The gladiolus, hence, its name, is also meant to pierce the heart of the recipient, conveying infatuation. Additional meaning can be conveyed through color choice; red typically conveys passion, white expresses purity, and yellow often means friendship.
  5. They’re Not Bulbs? – Although the gladiolus is a perennial flower, which can be dug up and stored through winter in cold climates, the flower does not have a true bulb, as other perennials do. The gladiolus bulb is called a corm.

Our Philosophy and Design Team

We use the beauty of nature to say the things that words cannot express. 

Our team has dedicated decades to learn how to use the language of floral design to bring our clients’ love, friendship, romance, sympathy, empathy, hospitality, and gratitude to life.

Linda  Domenico, Owner

Inspired by over 40 years of experience as a floral designer, a lifetime of traveling, and her adventures in entrepreneurship, Linda creates truly extraordinary arrangements tailor-made for each of her clients.

Drawing from her experience as the owner of floral studios in Santa Cruz, Maui, and Beacon, NY, Linda brings her professionalism, timely attention to detail, and diverse floral palette to metro Sarasota.

She loves to connect with people and express their emotions through Tiger Lily’s original floral arrangements; in fact, she considers her ability to offer a wide range of fresh designs as one of her most cherished gifts.

A trusted veteran of local galas, Linda’s resume sparkles with household names like Mote Marine, The Cat Depot, Lighthouse for the Blind, the Sarasota Ballet, and the Sarasota Opera.

Her ability to connect with people and express their emotions through floral arrangements is one of her most cherished gifts.  Each new design is an opportunity to tell a different story; an opportunity to innovate and be creative.

Cody W. Eddleman

Floral Designer

Fifteen years ago in a Missouri florist shop, Cody first unleashed his creativity and his reputation for creating arrangements far beyond the norm took hold. His larger-than-life floral displays became the talk of the town and gained a following.

Cody also grew to love and incorporate silk flower arrangements into his repertoire because of their wide range of versatility. From outstanding visual displays to personal-sized miniatures, each design challenge is both exciting and rewarding for Cody, but more importantly, they earn raves from those who enjoy them.

You will almost always see Cody in his signature jeans and cowboy boots with Maggie, the Golden Retriever who overcame many obstacles in her early life only to bring a smile to the face of anyone she meets, by his side.

We deliver locally to the Lakewood Ranch, Sarasota, and Manatee counties area and as a member of B Brooks Fine Flowers, you can send your flowers nationally and internationally.
