Celebrating a 50th anniversary is a big event, and you can help the special couple honour their day with a thoughtful plant gift. There are some plants you want to stay away from when celebrating an anniversary, as every plant and flower has a meaning and you want to convey the proper message.

Lonicera Golden Trumpet

The Lonicera Golden Trumpet plant has small buds that are a bright, vibrant gold colour, honouring the 50th anniversary, which is also known as the golden anniversary. The golden trumpet is known as a climbing plant with long buds and vines that shoot and climb upward, making it an ideal hanging plant that can be appreciated from several angles.

Leycesteria Golden Lanterns

Leycesteria Golden Lanterns are shrub plants that grow golden leaves, playing on the golden anniversary theme. The plant is also a late-season bloomer that thrives into cooler months when other plants have stopped blooming---playing on the themes of longevity and tradition that a couple married for 50 years may want to honour.

Rose Golden Wedding

The Rose Golden Wedding is a rose bush designed to honour 50th anniversaries. The plant has beautiful small, golden rosebuds and is resilient against plant diseases, a good theme for those married for five decades. This plant is well-known for its strong perfume, and it thrives in sunlight, making it a cheery gift for the happy couple.
