Celebrate August with Fresh Gladiolus

Happy birthday to all the August born babes out there! :) This is your month to celebrate and what better way than with the August birth flower, the Gladiola!
Gladiolas are fragrant, summer flowers that can grow up to 3-4 feet tall. They come in several colors and bi-colors and bloom all through August. Traditionally, gladiolas are known to represent strength because of their sword-like features.
Add an accent of tropical ti-leaves to balance visual texture of the soft, ruffled gladiolas with the smooth, flat ti leaves. Adding an exotic foliage like ti leaves creates an interesting spin on a seasonal standard.
Whatever flower you fancy, be sure to send your favorite August born babe an instant smile-with a fresh vase of flowers!

Best Wishes,
Miss Judy Bloom
