Plant a Decorative Shrub in Memory


Planting a decorative shrub in memory of someone can be a more affordable option to honor your loved one.  A flowering Memory Shrub will serve as a beautiful remembrance of their life. We will respectfully scatter the ashes and place an engraved and personalized memorial stone beneath his or her flowering shrub.

A Memory Shrub can also be planted without the ashes of a loved one.  For some families, they simply want a living memorial to stand in honor of their loved one.  We will also place a memory stone at the base of the shrub, to serve as a testament to the family’s love and reverence.


Your loved one’s ashes will be scattered with care on our private property at the base of a memorial shrub. From this location, you can see portions of the James River and hear the soothing nearby waterfall.

The Process

When you select our memorial shrub service, we’ll send you a package with all the necessary materials to ship your loved one’s remains. This package includes:

  • Boxes
  • Label
  • Tape
  • Simple Instructions

After you prepare your package, you can ship it from your local post office. We also offer personal pickup, where we can pick up the ashes in person for an additional fee (CLICK HERE to see details).

When we receive the ashes, we spread them with care on our beautiful property overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia. It will be scattered with the memorial shrub during the planting process.

Once this is complete, we send you a Certificate of Release recording the date and exact location of the scattering of your loved one’s remains.

You can visit their final resting place during our annual Days of Celebration. Twice a year, we open our property to visitors so they can remember and celebrate together.

Feel free to reach out to us with any questions before you place your order. We’re here to assist you at every step, making the process as easy as possible.
