Peonies are the twelfth anniversary flower and are known as the flower of wealth and honor. With their lush, romantic blooms, peonies represent love and prosperity. Grown in many colors, each with their own meaning, red peonies signify deep romantic love and a bouquet that includes this flower is an omen of good fortune and a happy marriage. If peonies are unavailable or out of season, the classic anniversary bouquet of red roses will always be appreciated.
