Though no one likes to think about the moments for which we’d need sympathy flowers, it’s best to be prepared for when the moment arrives. This means being prepared to discuss sympathy and funeral flower options with your local florist.
A few cut flowers have very significant meanings that will help convey your sympathies. When speaking with your local florist, discuss flowers such as poppy, cosmos, forget-me-nots, geraniums, larkspur, jasmine, lisianthus and zinnia. The flower meanings of each represents a very special sentiment. If desired, include a small statement about why these flowers were chosen.
The meanings of these flowers are:
- Poppy = Consolation
- Cosmos = Peaceful
- Forget-Me-Not = “Remember Me Forever”
- Geranium = Comfort
- Larkspur = Beautiful Spirit
- Jasmine = Grace and Elegance
- Lisianthus = Calming
- Zinnia = Thoughts of Friends
Your local florist will be able to discuss which flowers are appropriate, their seasonal availability, and other important details before sending a sympathy arrangement. Whichever flowers you choose, the recipient will know just how much you care.
