There are no particular types of flowers or colours that should be sent to a Memorial Ceremony or home of the bereaved. There are, of course, many favourites. Carnations, chrysanthemums, gladioli, lilies, and roses are traditionally used in flower arrangements. In particular, white lilies represent peace and red roses are renowned for expressing love. If the deceased always loved being in the garden and had a favourite flower and colour, it would be very comforting for the bereaved to receive an arrangement that includes these varieties.
