I have been told a normal sized rose is too big and don’t really like miniature roses. Do you have any suggestions for wild flower plants ..she loved poppies, cornflowers, wild orchids, snowdrops.

All of these wild flowers would be a beautiful gesture, especially since your friend loved them. Be sure to use some fresh potting soil to give them a good start. Most cemeteries have restrictions on what can be planted. For example, some may limit to spring bulbs such as daffodils (which return every year) or tulips. Snowdrops are a bulb and would work.
