Cemetery flowers are more than just flowers because they have symbolic meanings. For instance, red roses mean love, while white roses mean heavenly. Lilac represents renewal and confidence, while lilies are a symbol of purity. 

Therefore, flower arrangements make a good choice of remembrance and a symbolism of the love you have for the deceased and how you will keep them in mind.

  1. The season: The season you're in is an important factor to consider when selecting the perfect flowers for your loved ones' gravesite. This is because some flowers are only available during certain seasons. For example, lilies are typically associated with springtime. Thus, if you are looking for springtime flowers, lilies would be a perfect choice.

Also, you should note that most cemeteries have cemetery rules and regulations when it comes to delivering and choosing flowers for a gravesite. A cemetery may not allow artificial flowers or a cemetery vase full of flowers but prefer real flowers like red roses, yellow lily, amaryllis, chrysanthemum, and so on.
