The Lily Flower: A Great Sympathy Flower
The lily flower is one of the most common flowers associated with funeral services in the United States. A part of the genus Lilium, these beautiful and delicate flowers are often interpreted as a symbol of innocence that has been restored to the soul of the departed. White lilies are very common in Christian denominations, as the snowy Madonna Lily is often used to represent the Virgin Mary. The striped pink version of the lily, known as the Stargazer Lily, is a very popular flower for bouquets that are used during times of trial and encouragement.
The Rose: Express Your Condolences With This Beautiful Flower
As one of the most recognizable flowers in the world, the rose is a very popular floral option for funerals. While white roses tend to evoke reverence, humility, and youthfulness, red roses tend to convey respect, love, and courage. Dark crimson roses symbolize grief and sorrow, which may be the best flower to send to someone if they have lost a loved one.
If you’re looking for a sympathy floral bouquet that will outlast all other flowers, consider sending your loved one a custom rose bouquet from Venus Et Fleur. Our Eternity Roses™ are real, live roses that can live up to a full year with the proper maintenance. We treat our flowers with a proprietary solution and unique color pigmentation process that transforms our roses into long lasting arrangements.

The Gladioli: A Popular Flower For Funeral Services
Another popular flower to send to someone who has lost a loved one is the gladioli. These flowers feature a long stem, and most arrangements are composed of multiple flowers that can measure up to four feet tall. They are often used in fan sprays, which are a classic and elegant arrangement that can be found in most traditional funeral services. The gladiolus embodies strength of character, sincerity, and moral integrity in the flower world, and they are available in a wide range of colors. From white to pink and green, you have the ability to customize your floral arrangements to meet your unique needs.
