According to the Oxford English Dictionary, Floscle is an obsolete word meaning Flower, derived from the Latin flōsculus. See also Floscampy, Floscular, Flosculation, Floscule, Flosculent, Flosculet, Flosculose, and Flosculous.

In 1599, A. M. tr.'s Gabelhouer's Book Physicke :

Insunde thereon, of the beste oyle Olive, as much as wille cover the floscles
and in 1770, in C. Smart's Hop Garden :
The hop ... began to hang Its folded floscles from the golden vine.

Robert Cawdrey's A Table Alphabeticall defines floscles simply as flowers.
