We are here to tell you which flowers are most appropriate for conveying messages of sympathy and remembrance, so that you can find the best fit for your recipient. Opting for artificial sympathy and remembrance flowers means that they will last forever, and always act as a reminder of the lost loved one.
What are the best colours for Artificial Sympathy Flowers?
Flower colours can hold different meanings, so it is important to consider the significance colour when choosing sympathy flowers. White flowers are popular choices for funerals and memorials, as white signifies purity, eternal love and reverence. However, red flowers would also be a good choice as they signal strength, respect, love and devotion. Purple flowers represent sorrow, admiration and sympathy, whereas blue flowers indicate sadness, sympathy and peace. Opting for green flowers would also be ideal if you want to signify renewal and nature.
Artificial Sympathy Roses
Traditionally, roses are a symbol of love and a reminder that somebody is thinking of you. Although red roses signify romance, and yellow roses are associated with friendship and joy; white roses symbolise purity and new beginnings, and cream roses indicate thoughtfulness. Therefore, when buying sympathy roses, you may want to consider purchasing them in white or cream.

Artificial Sympathy Lilies
The lily flower is one that is frequently associated with funerals, remembrance and loss. In some religions, such as Christianity, the lily traditionally represents resurrection, and can also convey the idea of the beginning of a new chapter or a new outlook on life. Additionally, they are said to represent the restored innocence of the departed’s soul. White lilies also signal purity, making them the perfect choice for sympathy flowers.

Artificial Sympathy Hydrangeas
Although they are not a stereotypical funeral or remembrance flower, we think that the meanings attached with hydrangeas would make them a beautiful flower to indicate sympathy. Hydrangeas are associated with feelings of appreciation, and heartfelt feelings. White hydrangeas also represent purity and innocence. Considering these meanings, we think that a bouquet of white hydrangeas would make a thoughtful and beautiful sympathy gift.
