What is the Birth Month Flower for August?

August’s birth flowers are the gladiolus and the poppy. These two flowers signify remembrance, calm, pleasure, and success. Perfect flowers for this late summer month!

Botanical Background of Gladiolus and the Poppy

Gladiolus: The gladiolus is a flowering plant from the iris family, Iridaceae. Sometimes referred to as the sword lily, the gladiolus is typically found growing in Asia, Mediterranean Europe, South Africa, and tropical Africa. 

The Poppy: Most poppies are found across the Northern Hemisphere and are most often cultivated as garden ornamentals. California is particularly rich with brilliant poppy flowers. From the poppy family Papaveraceae, the flowers usually have four to six petals with numerous stamens.
