Are flowers allowed?

Cut flowers or artificial arrangements are always allowed in permanent vases that are attached to the headstone. For funerals and holidays you may place wreaths, grave blankets, flowers and temporary plants on grave spaces. Wreaths, blanket wreaths, flowers, or any other adornments must be pinned to the ground so they do not blow away. All decorations which are not in permanent vases will be removed from the grave space five (5) days after a funeral or holiday. The Cemetery Superintendent may remove and/or dispose of any fresh cut or artificial flowers that fade, become wilted, discolored, damaged, or are otherwise unsightly. No planting of trees, shrubs, flowers or the like shall be permitted. No articles of any nature shall be placed upon the surface of the grave space except as herein specifically set out. They will be removed.
