In a time of grief, tokens of remembrance and sympathy from loved ones can provide comfort to those who mourn. It can, however, be difficult to choose the right way to send your message of sympathy. The gift of a plant is often an ideal choice. Plants provide a lasting tribute to the loved one lost, as well as a constant reminder of the friendship and affection you wish to support the bereaved through the grieving process.
When Are Sympathy Plants Appropriate?
Sending plants as an expression of your sympathy is always appropriate, no matter what your relationship to the deceased and no matter when you send your gift. After the commotion and distraction of the funeral services are past, it can be comforting for your loved ones to receive a reminder that they are still in your thoughts.

If you choose to send plants immediately upon hearing of the sad event, you may opt to send your gift to the memorial service or directly to the family's home. Both choices provide beauty and comfort. Often, families will bring plants sent to memorial services home afterwards.

Sending Plants to Memorial Services
Plants can bring a feeling of peace and life to memorial services. They serve as a tangible statement of sympathy and support for the bereaved. Plants are appropriate for many different types of memorial services, including visitations, cremations, and traditional funeral services. After the service is over, plants are also easy for the family to bring back home. As their journey through grief progresses, family members can continue to appreciate your tribute to their loved one and to feel your sympathy.

A plant given in sympathy may also be planted at the gravesite, adding beauty to the site and providing a reminder of hope and support to all who visit the gravesite in time to come.

Choosing the Right Plant
Any type of green or flowering plant can be appropriate as a sympathy gift. The most popular and traditional type of plant sent to express sympathy is the peace lily, or peace plant. If you are aware of a particular type of plant that the recipient favors, this may be an excellent choice for your sympathy gift.

FTD offers a variety of sympathy plants to help you offer comfort and support on this sad occasion. Each plant we offer is an appropriate and thoughtful expression of sympathy whoever the recipient and whenever you choose to send it. No matter what type of plant you choose, you can rest assured that we will deliver it with exceptional care and attention. Your gift will arrive fresh and beautiful, bringing your message of comfort and sympathy.
