What is the best plant to send to a funeral?
Ideally, a funeral plant should have luscious green leaves, but it should also sprout elegant flowers. A few of the plants that are most optimal for a funeral service include:
● Lily plants
● Dracaena plants
● Palm plants
● Philodendron plants
There are other great options, too. But rest assured that all of our FTD plant arrangements have a beautiful variety of plants that are exceedingly well-cultivated.
What can you send to a funeral instead of flowers?
Funeral plants make a great substitute for flowers. Funerals often feature lavish displays of flowers, like funeral sprays
. Plants will add some variety to the floral arrangements at the service. Send your plant in a beautiful condolence gift
, vase, or basket for additional luster. These remembrance vases can be displayed in the recipient’s home after the funeral.
Plants also last for a longer span of time than flowers do, and so the recipient of a plant can take meaningful joy in cultivating the plant and helping it grow. The best way to take care of yourself, after all, is to take care of something else.
Instead of sending floral arrangements to the funeral service, you could also send sympathy gifts to the grieving person’s home. A few of our sympathy gifts that are well-suited for the home include:
● Sympathy flowers
● Sympathy plants
Floral arrangements aside, you could also send a gourmet gift basket
or a remembrance figurine
. Our gourmet gift baskets are decoratively packed with sweets and treats that will provide much-needed nourishment and comfort food to the bereaved. A remembrance figurine may be given as a beautiful memento of the departed person, and it’s small enough to be placed anywhere within the home, to remind them you care and support them.
How much do funeral plants cost?
Most people tend to pay between $50 to $90 on quality funeral plants. FTD offers beautiful arrangements starting at $45, but we also offer even more lavish options.
