Rockcastle Florist provides local same day and express flower delivery service to Farrell-Ryan funeral home

A thoughtful and caring way to show your deep-felt gratitude this Memorial Day on Monday May 30th is to send patriotic and heartfelt Memorial Day Flowers from Rockcastle Florist.  This marvelous day of respect and tribute was officially designated as a federal holiday in 1971.  Before then, it was more commonly referred to as Decoration Day and started after the Civil War was over. Then people held many tributes to the heroic thousands of fallen American Soldiers that died in the Civil War. The tradition was to decorate graves with Memorial Day Flowers while also reciting prayers.

In today’s world, people attend or participate in parades and have family gatherings in addition to visiting memorials. There are many ways to reflect on our fallen heroes, including ceremonies, celebrations, and festive occasions that focus on patriotism and how much we value the freedom that we hold dear. These selfless warriors fought for us and now we must remember and honor them.

Memorial Day celebrations and remembrances often feature memorable and patriotic flowers. They are a great way to reflect the beauty and love represented in remembering these heroes, many of which were our loved ones. The skilled floral designers at Rockcastle Florist will proudly assist you with select a caring, thoughtful and patriot flower arrangement or green plant to honor a special military hero and members of his or her family.

Below are some of the very popular flowers to commemorate Memorial Day:

Blue Delphinium -A blue delphinium flower represents dignity, grace, youth, new life, and remembrance. Blue is one of the few shades of this beautiful flower.

White Lilies -White lilies symbolize majesty and immortality. Very appropriate as we pay tribute on Memorial Day. In some cultures they are considered an image of purity, beauty, innocence, and salvation.

Gladiolus – These flowers have a unique shape which resembles a sword. They represent strength of character.

Red Roses – The most common and best-known symbolism for the red rose is love, beauty and romance. However, they also can symbolize courage.

Carnations – In some countries like the Netherlands, Carnations symbolize remembrance for veterans.

Red Poppy – This pretty flower has a history dating back to World War I. A Canadian soldier wrote a poem that referred to red poppies that grew between the graves of fallen military personnel. The flower symbolizes the blood of the soldiers who died but also symbolizes new life and hope. The name of the famous poem is “In Flanders Fields”.

Daisies – Symbolizing new beginnings and fresh hopes, Daisy flowers close their petals at dawn and reopen them once again when the sun comes up.
