I haven’t, but I used to work in a flower shop. Gladiolus have very thick stems, so if you really want to use them, I’d recommend checking them out in person. If you only use one per vase, there will be a backside where someone will be looking at the stems instead of the flowers.

I went to a wedding where they used dendrobium orchids, which are really beautiful and bright, and are also multiple-blooms per stem. They only comment I would have on using flowers submerged is that there ended up being a lot of bubbles on the flowers.

the blooms on glads also dont hold up well in water, they kinda disintigrate if they’re in there for any amount of time.  i’d play around with it first…

@ClairDarling: I worked in a floral shop and was going to say the same thing… Glads have very papery blooms and will most likely wilt and shrivel quickly under water… Waxy flowers do better under water…
