What flower is most associated with Memorial Day?

Red poppies have long been associated with Memorial Day, courage, and sacrifice. However, they aren’t ideal for floral bouquets. Instead, we suggest Memorial Day flowers that include blue irises, red and white roses, or carnations. 

What flower signifies remembrance?

There are a variety of flowers that signify remembrance, including gladiolus, statice, and forget-me-nots. However, there are other flowers that can be used to honor the loss of fallen heroes and express mourning, including carnations, chrysanthemums, and lilies. To honor your beloved service member, whether they are still with you or not, you can also consider the type of Memorial Day flowers they would appreciate most. Our Memorial Day baskets and bouquets are as diverse as the loved ones that they are meant to represent.
