Flowers of the month – August

And so the month of August has arrived. We’re still asking ourselves how did that happen! Despite all the trials and tribulations that 2020 has thrown at us so far, the months still seem to have rolled by so fast this year.

Flowers associated with the month of August are the gladiolus and poppy. These are also sometimes referred to as birth flowers given that they are associated with the month you are born.

The gladiolus can also be known by some people as the “Sword Lily” attributed by the thin and elongated shape of the plant. It can come in a variety of colours e.g. pink, red, orange, yellow, purple and white. The meaning associated with the gladiolus is a strength of character, remembrance and sincerity.

The poppy is a well-known and easily recognisable for its bright red colouring. It is a strong symbol of remembrance to the tragedy and loss of life lost in World War 1. The meaning associated with the poppy is imagination.

As with every flower of the month, they each have a unique meaning. Therefore it is sure to make the recipient of your floral gift feel very special and it demonstrates that you put some extra thought into their gift.
