Sympathy Plants FAQs
What Is a Good Sympathy Plant?
A sympathy plant differs from funeral flowers in that it is delivered to the home or office of those close to the deceased. While a white lily, the symbol of rebirth and purity, is the classic sympathy plant, a hydrangea is another good choice. The deceased’s relatives can plant a hydrangea and watch it bloom year after year. This is a good sympathy plant for someone who wants to create a small memorial garden for their loved one. The same holds true for purple hyacinths, which symbolize sorrow.
Is a Plant a Good Sympathy Gift?
A plant is a good sympathy gift for those in mourning as it serves as a tribute to the memory of the departed. We choose plants for condolence gifts when we want to provide those who are grieving with a living memorial to their loved one. It is often difficult to find the right words to say to those suffering a loss. Same day sympathy flowers and plants send the message that you care.
What Is the Best Color for Sympathy Plants?
Traditionally, white plants and flowers are sent for sympathy. Sending a sympathy flower delivery consisting of white lilies is a good choice, as they are the traditional flower of sympathy. However, white roses, carnations, and the blue blooms known as forget-me-nots are all suitable sympathy flowers. Sympathy flowers also depend on your relationship to the deceased and the circumstances surrounding the death. For instance, yellow roses are an appropriate choice to send if you have lost a friend. If the person died young, violets are a traditional sympathy flower.
