Plastic Flowers are not permitted in Elmwood. Natural cut flowers and silk flowers are allowed. The following items are not allowed: temporary markers, glass, balloons, pinwheels, wooden crosses, shepherd’s hooks, LED lights, or other extraneous items.

During the grass cutting season, which is usually February through October, flowers may not be placed in separate containers on the graves. Exceptions are Easter, Mother's Day, Father's Day, and Memorial Day. Flowers left on these holidays will remain in place for five days. Saddles and wire clamps used to attach flower arrangements on the top of monuments can be purchased at most florist shops, craft stores, and monument dealerships.

Elmwood is not responsible for flowers or other decorations placed on graves. These items will be removed from the cemetery as needed.
