If you’re anything like us here at Peoples Flowers, you spend Memorial Day both honoring the fallen heroes in your life and getting together with the friends and family who are in it now. The spirit is both respectful and celebratory, and the flowers you use to enhance the events you host in your home have to follow suit. Many of us will be coming together in our outdoor spaces, hosting barbecues or eating dinner under the stars. After all, this is the cusp of summer.
One of the best fits for Memorial Day when it comes to plants and flowers is one that combines both. A flowering Azalea Plant offers the best of both worlds—something that is hardy enough to work outdoors but that is also as beautiful as flowers. The red captures the spirit of Memorial Day, and the planter filled with Spanish moss gives the whole piece a more formal aspect. This could be placed on the patio or deck as a piece of decor or set on the table as a centerpiece.
An azalea also makes an awesome gift on this occasion, an ever-blooming plant that symbolizes the constant admiration and appreciation for our heroes.
