Mother’s Day Flowers.

Flowers have been an emblem of love for centuries and on Mother’s Day, we literally send millions of flowers across the miles to our beloved moms. But with stylistic palettes as variable as the mothers themselves, how should I know which bouquet or silk flower arrangement will be the most cherished and enjoyed by my mom?

There is a group of flowers known for their cheeriness that are commonly used as Mother’s Day gifts because they are believed to be symbolic of motherhood and its affectionate nature. Those flowers are ones such as wild flowers, Gerber daises, tulips, or daffodils. They remind us of spring and the warmth of the sun… much like the warmth of motherly love.

Roses are also a very traditional Mother’s Day flower. Red roses express romantic love while yellow roses speak of friendship and joy. Pink roses are given to show gratitude and white roses show reverence and humility.

Carnations, orchids, and mixed bouquets are also popular choices; however one mustn’t limit themselves to this list if their mother’s personal taste varies beyond it. Here is a list of less common Mother’s Day flowers given either in a fresh cut bouquet or a silk flower arrangement that she will enjoy year round.

  • Calla lily
  • Hyacinth
  • Iris
  • Magnolia
  • Lotus Hydrangea
  • Amaryllis
  • Peonies
  • Freesia
