City Hospice Forever Flowers provides an opportunity for our community to celebrate and remember the lives of lost ones.

We are delighted once again to provide the public with a means to celebrate life and to remember loved ones with City Hospice’s Forever Flowers within one of Cardiff’s most iconic locations, Cardiff Castle.

Forever Flowers has been inspired by the ongoing challenges around bereavement, and our wish to support people with their grief. This year’s choice of flowers is a Sunflower, which for many symbolises positivity, admiration, loyalty, and devotion.

A stunning display within the grounds of Cardiff Castle

Thousands of beautiful metal Sunflowers will feature in a stunning display within the grounds of Cardiff Castle from 30th July – 14th August 2022. Your Sunflower will be a part of this special display in memory of someone you love. Now more than ever, we need these occasions to celebrate life. During the final two days of the display, you will be welcome to take away your flower and place it in a space that is special to you.

Celebration of Life Event

New to this year’s Forever Flowers campaign, we will be holding a Celebration of Life event on the evening of Thursday 4th August. This is a special opportunity for not only those who have purchased a Forever Flower but for the community to come together and join City Hospice with this private event within the grounds of Cardiff Castle.

Why did you choose a Sunflower?

Following the success of our 2021 Forever Flowers campaign, and recognising the overwhelming need for events like this for people to come together, we began planning this year’s campaign in the Autumn of 2021. It was at this point that we decided upon the sunflower as our Forever Flower for 2022 as the symbolism of the flower aligned with our campaign’s sentiments and has been a long standing emblem of the hospice movement.

While Forever Flowers has no affiliation with Ukraine, whose national flower is the sunflower, we stand in solidarity with the people of Ukraine and in condemnation of the invasion. Our bereavement counselling service is open to everyone and we encourage people to get in touch for support.
