Plants for wedding anniversary gifts
Shop our selection of the best plants for wedding anniversary gifts, perfect for a thoughtful and practical present to anyone celebrating the anniversary of their special day. The most obvious choices, which we include in this section, are plants which reference the anniversary in the name. As a helpful reminder, silver wedding anniversary is 25 years; ruby is 40 years; golden wedding anniversary is 50 years; and a “special anniversary” can, of course, by any anniversary at all! It tends to be hybrid tea or floribunda roses, or camellias which reference wedding anniversaries in their name. Floribunda is Latin is “many flowering” – these roses bear many flowers held in large clusters, blooming continuously from summer through to late autumn. They aren't normally as scented as Hybrid Tea roses but are generally hardier and more robust, with a higher disease resistance and therefore easier to grow.
Hybrid tea roses produce large, shapely flowers from high-centred buds on long, straight stems. Hybrid teas produce one flower per stem, making them great for using as cut flowers. Flowers usually appear in three flushes between summer and late autumn. They're sparsely foliaged with average winter hardiness. Camellia are acid-loving shrubs bearing flamboyant flowers in shades of pink, red and white above attractive, glossy evergreen foliage. Camellia flowers come in a variety of forms ranging from single to fully double and anemone to rose. There is of course nothing to say you cannot choose something different – our garden plant finder is the best way to navigate our full plant range. Delivery couldn’t be easier – our plants are sent by courier throughout the UK. All gifts can be accompanied by a card and personalised, hand-written message.
