  1. How about aloe vera? It is a beautiful healing plant, long-lasting like your marriage. While it is not Mexican in origin, it is very widely used and appreciated there. It also has historical and religious significance.

  2. Try Bouganvilleas. They grow like weeds in warmer weather and come in a few different colors (mostly reds, pinks and yellows, but I’ve seen purple as well). They are a small, three petalled flower.

  3. Mexican Heather sound appropriate.

  4. The Spanish Bluebell (Hyacinthoides hispanica) native to the deciduous woods of Spain, is beautiful & can grow in zones 3-8:

    Spanish Bluebell are also called: ‘Wood Hyacinths’. Here’s a discussion about them:

    The Dahlia is the national flower of Mexico. the mountains of Mexico and Guatemala are considered the home of origin for today’s dahlia ancestors. From the Royal Botanical Gardens in Madrid, Spain, dahlia seeds and tubers were soon sent throughout western Europe.
