August Birth Flower - Poppy

Poppies are a favourite because of their bright flowers and rich histories in Western culture. Available in a rainbow of beautiful colours, these flowers are very popular in the late summer months.

In the west, poppies typically symbolise remembrance. For this reason, they are often displayed around Memorial Day.

Poppies come in various colours with different meanings. Red poppies symbolise happiness while yellow poppies represent prosperity. White poppies stand for sympathy, and purple shows enchantment.

Gladiolus - Birth Flower August

The other August birth flower is the Gladiolus. Gladiolus is also known as ‘sword lily’, and it comes in red, pink, white, yellow and purple.

In general, gladioli symbolise strength and faithfulness. Delicate red petals stand for love, while white and yellow gladioli represent joy.

This August birth flower also stands for love and remembrance - making them a lovely flower for the 40th-anniversary.
