Sympathy Plants

Sending 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.

Sending Sympathy Plants

Sending sympathy plants can sometimes feel like a task that takes an emotional toll. Whether there’s been a death in the family or someone is severely ill, or a close friend of yours is otherwise grieving, a respectful kind gesture (and a great way to show your compassion) is to choose sympathy plants to send.

Generally people send flowers but many take a different and more personal approach by hand-picking the most appropriate and sincere plants for loved ones, customizing them with add-ons and having sympathy plants delivered right to the homes of the mournful. An additional affectionate gesture to show your endless support is to handwrite a heartfelt note in a card or on special stationery. This is especially important to include if you’re far away and having sympathy plants delivered.

There are many choices of sympathy plants ? so it’s a smart idea to send a plant you know your recipient really likes and/or one that’s not too hard to care for, as hard times can distract our everyday lives & rituals. A sympathy plant delivery of a Succulent, Gardenia or a beautiful lush peace lily. is a good choice for these types of people. For those who like to keep busy too keep their minds off tragedy, choose Orchids or similar ?hard-to-grow? blooms. Also, why not send sympathy plant baskets filled with goodies like gourmet cookies, fruits & nuts and more? They’re a refreshing ?change of pace? and your loved ones will no doubt be grateful for it.

In the end, the best sympathy plants are those that are, of course, sent from the heart; whether it’s a beautiful orchid that takes time to care for ? perfect to rest the mind and soul of a grieving green-thumb - or a simple yet elegant tribute wreath that doesn’t require much attention. A sympathy plant delivery will always be well-received and appreciated.
