Express yourself perfectly during times of sorrow with an elegant, living sympathy plant. As opposed to flowers, plants will continue to serve as a tribute to a life well-lived long after the funeral service is over. If you need assistance, please contact our Specialty Sympathy Advisors toll free at 1-866-538-2259.
Our collection of sympathy plants includes both plants delivered by a local florist and a selection that can be shipped to the family's home or office.
A sophisticated and beautiful way to show your care and support, plants also aid in the healing process. Research shows that contact with nature can significantly improve mind, body and spirit. According to scientific studies, the presence of plants during recovery from a difficult experience prompts positive emotions, lowers stress levels, and can even improve heart rate and blood pressure.
Plants can also help the healing process by naturally filtering the air. A recent NASA study concluded such plants as Gerbera daisies and English ivy are known to remove toxins from the air through their leaves, roots, and soil. Also fragrant flowers such as roses and lavender can promote relaxation and general well being.
