In times of grief, express your condolences with sympathy plants. Funeral plants are a soothing way to express affection and concern for friends and family. Unlike cut flowers, a living sympathy plant will not wither and die in a few short days. It will live on as a touching reminder of your sincerity, and caring for it may help to ease the pain of losing a loved one.

Our sympathy plant collection includes classic flowers like white gardenias and peace lilies.

When choosing an appropriate sympathy gift, there are few options as fitting as a living plant. Selecting a sympathy plant to send to a wake or service is a wise choice. Because these condolence gift flowers and plants live on for months and years, they can serve as reminders of your support in a difficult time. As they grow, they become a living memorial to the lost loved one.

There are many practical reasons to send live plants vs. traditional cut floral arrangements. For one, with everyone's attention on other matters, flowers often get pushed to the backburner. With no one to attend to it immediately, flowers will fade and die. A potted sympathy plant can survive at least day or two without attention, and will last as long as you care for it.

What are the best plants for a funeral? Around the world, white is recognized as the color of purity and mourning. That makes white peace lilies, roses, gardenias, and orchids a traditional choice for expressing your condolences. Because green represents life and nature, glossy foliage is also welcome at celebrations of life. Some choose to send sympathy plants with bright, vibrant colored flowers as well. Red can remind us of passion, pink symbolizes youth and innocence, and yellow resembles a sunny day. Sometimes that splash of color is exactly what someone needs to smile amid the grief.
