Red geraniums are perhaps the most common, probably for their hardiness. In the language and sentiment of flowers, however, geraniums are a symbol of comfort and not particularly associated with death or remembrance. In more ancient times, the primrose was much more popular, because graves were often decorated around Easter and the primrose was available in the wild almost as early as the snow melted.

They are an emblem of regret, probably because of their drooping flower heads. Robert Herrick (1591-1674) described the daffodil like this: "When a daffadil I see / Hanging down her head t'ward me, / Guess I may, what I must be; / First, I shall decline my head, / Secondly, I shall be dead, / Lastly, safely buried."

Seven groups receive mention: angels, archangels, principalities, powers, virtues, dominions, and thrones. Along with the cherubim and seraphim named in the Old Testament, this listing gave rise to the theory of the nine choirs of angels: The Celestial Hierarchy.
