The image which Gliftex creates will almost certainly not be what you want, but we will go ahead changing a few settings to arrive at some lovely floral designs.
Now, right click on the image and choose "Change Interpretation..." from the menu which pops up:
Now choose Floral from the list of interpretations:
Next you will be able to choose the flower petal and leaf shape and sizes and so on. Put the sliders at roughly the positions shown below:
Then click on OK. Gliftex will create a new image.

Put the settings as you see them above, and click on OK. The image you get will be something like this:

Here are some examples of the same floral image on a trellis with different color schemes:
