Are you or a special someone celebrating a birthday in the month of August? Here at Bloom Magic, we love learning about some of the traits and fun facts about people’s birth month and August babies sure are interesting. From their star sign to their birthstone and everything in between, read all the fun facts about people with August birthdays and get to know your friends and loved ones a little better.
If you are born in the month of August, your birthstone is the stunning peridot. Peridot is one of the few gemstones that only come in one colour, olive, and truly manages to catch the eye due to its stunning and unadulterated appearance.
Peridot is commonly used in jewellery and dependant on the quality can be completely pure or with cloudy additions, both of which are truly breath-taking. When this stunning gem has clouds due to the formation, the stone becomes completely unique with no way to imitate the beautiful clouds present.
The Power of the Flower
The birth flower of August is the absolutely stunning gladiolus. This incredible bloom is known for its striking colour palette of pinks, greens, blues and purples. Gladiolus blooms in late-summer.
The flower gets its name from the Latin of sward due to the beautiful sharp spikes on the bloom and, as a result of this, it is commonly known as the “sward lily”. Generally found in Africa, China, and Mediterranean areas of Europe, the gladiolus can be seen in the months of August and September. Due to the seasonal nature of this bloom, supplies are limited and inconsistent and therefore are not available on Bloom Magic’s website as we wish to secure only the most consistently beautiful floral offerings.
We do, however, have a selection of blooms known and loved by those born in August. Think of beautiful classic, elegant and timeless blooming bouquets.
