Perhaps you’ll find out your favorite flower is the same as your favorite female celebrity!
Anne Hathaway – Anemones
A versatile actress with many awards; it does not surprise Anne Hathaway’s favorite flower is the Anemone, which comes in a variety of vibrant colors. Anemones are beautiful wildflowers with delicate sepals that form a cup shape when fully blossomed. There are several different meanings associated with the color of the anemone, red and pink ones represent being forsaken, while white anemones symbolize sincerity, and purple anemones protect against evil spirits.
Katy Perry – Purple and White Hydrangeas
The big blooms of hydrangea flowers make them a favorite flower of many women. The meaning of hydrangeas varies across cultures from apologies and heartfelt emotion to boastfulness and arrogance. Coming in a variety of colors, though, color symbolism around the world is mostly uniform. Katy Perry’s favorite hydrangea colors of white and purple symbolize purity and grace for white, and pride, royalty, and understanding for purple. An interesting fact about hydrangeas is that their color is derived from the level of acidity in the soil.
Angelina Jolie – Orchid
An exotic beauty herself, Angelina Jolie’s favorite flower is the equally exotic orchid. The graceful, delicate blooms of the orchid come in a variety of shapes and colors depending on the species. A commonality of all orchids, however, is that they possess three petals and three sepals. Orchids symbolize beauty, love, strength, and luxury – qualities Angelina Jolie has in spades.
Jackie Kennedy Onassis – White Peony and Blue Cornflower
Fashion icon as well as First Lady, Jackie Kennedy Onassis, loved white peonies and blue cornflowers. Jackie took on the task of renovating and updating the White House grounds after many years of neglect. She used blue cornflowers to add a majestic pop of color.

The white peony, Jackie’s other favorite floral, is a beautiful full, rounded bloom that symbolizes success, prosperity, and purity.
