Selecting a sympathy plant to someone is a great way to share in their grief and show support. Flowers tend to be more popular, but plants last significantly longer and convey a deep, lasting respect.
The dark green colors of most sympathy plants convey profound respect, while white flowering blooms symbolize purity, innocence, and re-birth. There are several different kinds of plants to choose from, including the White Peace Lily, white orchid plants including the Song of India Orchid Garden, and our flowering Gardenia plants. Also consider sending ivy plants, ferns, or small evergreen trees. Each plant from ProFlowers comes with detailed care instructions - so the gift has a chance to thrive and last a long time.

In recent years, there has been a growing trend of people planting small trees in memory of those deceased. Some cemeteries and burial grounds even have a small space set aside for the planting of these memory trees. Also acceptable are planting these trees in your own yard and enclosing a picture in a sympathy note. Planting a tree correctly and nourishing takes some effort, and people know that this is reminiscent of the person passed. Few other things that you can do from abroad communicate sympathy so well.
Because of the economic climate, less and less people are able to travel for out-of-town funerals – and in these instances, sending an appropriate sympathy plant can be your best bet to show regards.
