The pansy is the 1st-anniversary flower symbol. The language of flowers uses Pansies in a variety of ways; a Purple pansy is said to be for ‘the thoughts of happy days spent together are my greatest treasure.’ whereas the white Pansy is for thoughts of love meaning ‘you are in my thoughts’
Pansies are cultivated as garden flowers, although biennials are treated as annuals as typically they tend to run in their second year making them unsightly. They come in a range of colors including purple, yellow, red, and blue. You can give your spouse a bouquet of pansies on your 1st anniversary as a symbol of your love and appreciation.
