Ideal Plants to Memorialise Your Pet

Losing your beloved pet is a extremely heart breaking event, but there are some beautiful ways to memorialise your pet. One of the nicest is to create a memorial in your garden – by planting a shrub or tree, preferably a perennial that will give you and your family a long-lasting lasting and beautiful reminder of their life.

Ideal Plants to Memorialise Your Pet

To help you find the ideal plant, here are some shrubs that work well.


With its beautiful blue, white or pink flowers that bloom from the spring onwards, Lilac is a versatile choice for a memorial garden.


Abelias are covered in clusters of scented white or pink flowers. They bloom throughout the summer and into the autumn. Because they are evergreen and low maintenance, they make ideal memorial plants.


There are many Hydrangeas to choose from including some with flat flower heads and others with larger domed flowers. They will add a long period of soft pink, white or blue to your garden.


With masses of flowers in numerous colours in spring, they are great to add a dash of red, pink, purple, yellow or white to a memorial garden.


There are a wide range of Viburnums to choose from: big or small, deciduous or evergreen. Many are scented and they offer lovely variations of white and pink. They bloom from autumn to late spring, giving winter colour in your memorial garden.


These hardy perennials have distinctive two-tone flowers in different shades of white, red, pink and purple. They prefer a shadier spot so suit memorial gardens with dappled light.

There are so many plants to choose from, and you can also add trees to add to the tranquil space. Add a bench, a plaque and some mementos from your pet’s life and you’ll always have a quiet, contemplative place to honour your pet’s memory.
