A birthday is like a lovely flower that blooms in life’s garden and may that special blossom be bright especially today.
THE GLADIOLUS AND THE POPPY
August’s bright, showy flowers capture the essence of sunny, late summer days!
Learn the meanings behind August’s two birth flowers.
The gladiolus, or ‘sword lily,’ represents remembrance, calm, integrity, and infatuation.
Gladiolus indicates that the heart is being “pierced with love.”
The other August flower is the poppy:
- A red poppy signifies pleasure;
- A white poppy is given for consolation; and,
- A yellow poppy wishes wealth and success.
