August Birth Flowers (Poppy & Gladiolus)
$13.00 – $35.00
Poppies are associated with WWI because they started growing on battlefields among the rubble. This is because the lime from crushed stone acted as a fertilizer. These gorgeous flowers are popular in art as well as in medicine because they are used to make morphine. Gladiolus flowers also represent August. Their Latin root means sword, which makes sense because they are associated with gladiators, symbolize strength, and look like a sword.
