How to Select the Best Memorial Gift Tree

If you’re searching for the best memorial gift, you’re in the right place. We know that shopping for memorial trees for loved ones can be difficult because you want to be able to express your love and sympathy through your gift. So, we decided to create this guide to help you select the best memorial gift tree for your unique situation.

Plus, since you’re already here, you’re already one step in the right direction of finding the perfect gift for your loved one. One of the best things about our memorial trees is that they grow along with your giftee and will always be there as a reminder of your love for them. Additionally, they last longer than traditional bouquets, which means your recipient will be able to enjoy your gift for longer.

Identify Your Plant Hardiness Zone

The first thing you’ll want to do when choosing your memorial gift tree is identify your recipient's plant hardiness zone. While many of our plants will thrive inside with the right amount of sunshine, water, and TLC, if you want your giftee to be able to plant it outdoors as it grows, you’ll want to be sure you select a tree that can survive in their hardiness zone.

A quick google search should be able to identify your recipient's plant hardiness zone pretty easily or you can head right to the USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map. Once you know the hardiness zone, you can pick a plant accordingly. Each of our plants has its own plant hardiness zone map on our website so you can verify the plant will survive in their zone.

Flowering vs. Fruiting

Many of our trees boast beautiful flowers. Our Southern Magnolia Memorial Trees are some of our best selling trees for their beautiful creamy white buds. But some other popular flowering trees and bushes include our Fragrant Memorial Gardenia, Peace Lily, and White Rose Topiary.

Our flowering trees and bushes make great replacements for your typical bouquet because they’ll last for years to come. As with all blooming trees and plants, the bloom seasons vary so your gift tree might not arrive with blooms. However, it’s just a matter of time before these beautiful and majestic blooms appear. Our peace liliies are a nice alternative for those who wish to send a plant with blooms throughout the year.

Additionally, some of our other most popular memorial gifts are our fruit trees. We offer beautiful Olive Trees, a wonderful symbol of peace, as well as Lemon Trees and Avocado Trees. The great thing about purchasing a fruiting tree is that it is truly a gift that keeps on giving. As the tree grows, your recipient will be able to enjoy their gift more and more.


Another wonderful thing about memorial trees is that each has its own symbolism and meaning. Our Blue Spruce Memorial tree signifies resilience, strength, and everlasting life, while our Oak Trees are a symbol of strength, morale, resistance and knowledge. Each gift has its own unique meaning that can help you choose which tree would be best for your giftee.

We offer a variety of unique gift trees for remembrance such as oaks, roses, magnolias and more. When you send a memorial tree it is elegantly packaged, healthy and guaranteed to thrive. Our professional staff will be happy to select the correct tree for the recipient’s growing region so that it will grow in honor of the life that was lost.


Finally, when choosing your memorial gift tree you’ll have the option to add a gift card message. This option is completely free and gives you the opportunity to write a thoughtful note to your recipient. If you’re looking for something more permanent, we also offer personalized engraved metal tags and laser engraved olive wood crosses.

Overall, we hope this guide to selecting the best memorial gift tree was helpful and if you ever have any questions you can feel free to contact us here. Thank you for your ongoing support!
