The Best Flowers To Buy on Memorial Day

memorial day flowersMemorial Day is a very special holiday that honors the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. If you know someone who has died while fighting for their country, honor their memory by placing flowers on their grave. Blue flowers look very peaceful and represent loyalty and faithfulness. Let’s look at some of the common blue flowers that are used in Memorial Day arrangements.

Blue Daisy

This beautiful flower has yellowish centers surrounded by blue petals. It can be used to compliment taller flowers like yellow roses, irises and hydrangea.

Hydrangea

These flowers have large heads and are native to southern and eastern Asia and the Americas. You can definitely use these as the main flowers because they are so vibrant and eye catching. Think about mixing them with white mums and yellow roses.

For a fully thought out and beautiful arrangement ready to give this Memorial Day, check out our two favorite Memorial Day arrangements:

“America The Beautiful”

A patriotic pick to send a brave veteran, decorate your Fourth of July picnic, or celebrate Memorial Day. Lush red, white and blue flowers are presented in a deep blue glass cube vase along with an American flag. 

“The Yankee Doodle Doggie”

This patriotic pooch is ready to unleash smiles with all-American flair. Designed in a willow dog bed basket using the freshest white and red carnations, accented with a blue and white ribbon and an American flag. A fitting salute for dog lovers, pet parents or a fun surprise for anyone who shows pride in the U.S.A. 

Memorial Day flowers do not have to cost a fortune. In fact, they can be quite affordable and will show the men and women who fought for your country how much you appreciate them. When you place these beautiful flowers on a love one’s grave site, you will honor their memory.
