If you are wondering about how to pick the perfect flowers for someone’s birthday, how to pick birthday flowers for people who were born in August, or what is the flower for August birthday, do not worry, Art Flowers LA is here to help you make your choice, especially for birthday celebrations in August. You will know all about the blooms of August and their meaning to give the absolute best gift to your loved ones.
There are two known birthday flowers for August – the gladiolus and the poppy.
Gladiolus means strength and faithfulness because of its shape that almost resembles a sword. These flowers got their name from the word Gladiators. It looks like spikes coming straight up with blooms around it. Gladiolus has so many colors such as, white, yellow, pink, red, green, purple, and orange. You could combine them in bouquets with different flowers and different colors but the best match is peonies, dahlias, garden roses because they could support their spike shape. Mixed flower bouquets with gladiolus would be fantastic for people in any age as well as newborn babies because August is their month to celebrate their birthdays.
It’s really easy to care for gladioluses, just remember to cut at an angle and refresh the water in a vase every two or three days, it will help the blooms look better and look fresh and bright. Also you can remove lower wilt buds to help open new ones and your flowers will bloom again.
The second August birthday flower is the poppy. Poppy is associated with hope and remembrance from history. Poppies don’t have only one color –red, but you can also meet them in white, purple, and black. In wildlife you could find them in orange (California poppies), salmon, or even yellow colors. To look amazing in a bouquet, choose flowers that have layers of petals in blooms, for example, garden roses, ranunculus, and peonies or you could pick a flower arrangement with poppies and wildflowers – bright and stunning!
You will be surprised about how easy it is to care for fresh-cut poppies. Make a fresh angle cut of the stems and put them in hot or boiling water, immediately count to 15, and put the flower in a vase with normal temperature water. This step helps keep flowers fresh, open their buds, and stay bright. Do it every 2-3 days and enjoy the blooms.
Now you are a professional about choosing flowers for August birthdays, but don’t forget about other seasonal flowers that are blooming this month. The summer blooms are bright and hot-colored, they are almost screaming, “Look at me!!!!” There are sunflowers, dahlias, lilies, roses, and hibiscus. Art Flowers LA will help you make the right decision in choosing flowers for birthday celebrations in August. You could always choose them in a bouquet or a flower arrangement in a hat box.
If you or a recipient is not a big fan of cut flowers, and you want to keep flowers for a longer time than just 5-6 days, you can always pick a house plant for that. For August, it would be blooming dahlias in a pot, bright sunflowers, or wonderful poppies. They last longer and remind a person about you from the look at it. They don’t need special care – just water them when the ground is dry and cut wilt blooms to help to open new ones. This blooming will make your loved ones happy and fulfill the home with the brightness and aroma of the flowers.
The choice is yours but remember that it does not matter about the flowers that you pick for an August birthday, the main thing is that they show your love, your care, your attention, and everything else that you want them to mean – that’s the most important thing in the world.
