Birth Month Flower of August - The Gladiolus

Gladiolus flower

The gladiolus is the birth month flower of August, bringing luck to all births in August. Symbolically this flower signifies remembrance, infatuation, and strength of character. Its name comes from Latin's "gladius" meaning "sword" for its sword shaped leaves. This flower has also represented the Roman gladiators who carried swords. In mythology, there are many tales told of gladioli springing from blood shed by a sword.

Grown between July and September, the gladiolus requires full sunlight and is easy to grow and care for as the rose is. For this reason and because of its stunning beauty, these flowers are extremely popular in cultivation and hybridization. A tall stalk of flowers branching coming in a rainbow of colors is the best way to describe the gladiolus. Some medicinal uses are to cure common colds, diarrhea, painful menstruation, and constipation.

What Our Customers Are Saying:

* After exhaustive efforts to send flowers to my granddaughter for her first birthday in Canada from the USA, I found your web site. I tried 1800flowers, Teleflora, and FTD with either no luck in available arrangements to be delivered or exorbitant 'service fees' I was almost resigned to give up. I tried 'just one more' Thank goodness I did! Scarlett received her Bear Hug arrangement a few minutes ago. Her Mom (my daughter) says they are 'beautiful, smell fantastic and the bear is adorable.


* Amazing choices!!!


* You have a very comprehensive web site with plenty of choice
