Are you or someone you care about celebrating a birthday in August? We at Sophy Crown Flowers enjoy learning about some of the characteristics and fun facts about people's birth months, and August babies are no exception. Read all the fun facts about people born in August, from their star sign to their birthstone and everything in between, and get to know your friends and loved ones a little better.
The stunning peridot is your birthstone if you were born in the month of August. Peridot is one of the few gemstones that only comes in one color, olive, and it truly stands out due to its stunning and natural appearance.
Peridot is widely used in jewelry and, depending on the quality, can be completely pure or have cloudy inclusions, both of which are truly breathtaking. When this stunning gem develops clouds as a result of its formation, the stone becomes completely unique, with no way to replicate the beautiful clouds present.
THE FLOWER'S STRENGTH
August's birth flower is the absolutely stunning gladiolus. This magnificent bloom is known for its eye-catching color palette of pinks, greens, blues, and purples. Gladiolus flowers in the late summer.
Because of the beautiful sharp spikes on the bloom, the flower gets its name from the Latin for "sward," and it is commonly known as the "sward lily." The gladiolus can be found in Africa, China, and Mediterranean areas of Europe during the months of August and September. Because of the seasonal nature of this bloom, supplies are limited and inconsistent, and as a result, it is not available on the Sophy Crown Flowers website, as we prefer to secure only the most consistently beautiful floral offerings.
We do, however, have a selection of blooms that are well-known and appreciated by those born in August. Consider classic, elegant, and timeless blooming bouquets.
WRITTEN IN THE STARS
A person born in August has the astrological sign Leo. Leos are known for their fiery personalities and are represented by the lion. Leos are natural born leaders who aren't afraid to speak their minds and will be truthful with their loved ones.
Leos are known for their loyalty, love, and energy. Family is very important to Leos, and they will go to great lengths to protect those they care about.
A FRIENDLY APPEARANCE
