Appropriate Flower 13th year anniversary gift theme.
The appropriate Flower for the 13th year anniversary is the Holyhock.
The Holyhock is a flower that symbolizes long-lasting love and devotion. It is also a symbol of faithfulness, trust and constancy. The Holyhock is also known to represent joy, hope and good fortune.
The Holyhock is an herbaceous perennial plant with yellow flowers that bloom in summertime. The leaves are dark green with a reddish underside and are heart-shaped at the base. The rootstock can be used as an herbal medicine for treating skin infections, digestive problems and liver ailments.
The Holyhock grows best in sandy soils with good drainage, but it can tolerate most soil types except clay or heavy soils high in organic matter because they don’t provide enough air circulation around the roots to promote growth.
Holyhocks like full sun exposure but will tolerate partial shade if they’re planted in an area that gets no more than four hours of direct sunlight each day throughout the entire growing season.
