5 Favourite Flowers for Mums on Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is celebrated around the world and this year, it falls on Sunday, 8 May. One of the most popular and traditional gifts to give to mothers everywhere are flowers, which are always admired and appreciated. Here are our recommendations for the five best flowers to give this Mother’s Day.

Mother's Day Rosaria Bouquet in Vase

Garden Roses

Roses are a classic, making them an excellent gift for the mother who tends to be traditional. Skip the red, which is typically associated with romance, and instead opt for pink, which represents appreciation, love, and gratitude. Pink Garden Roses are especially exquisite with their large blooms and swirling petals.

Bundle of Love Orchid Set


The orchid is the flower to get for the practical mother, the woman who would lovingly nag you for spending too much. Orchids are long-lasting flowering plants and come in various sizes and colours. They are an easy houseplant to care for, too. If you’re wondering which colour to get, try purple, which represents respect, royalty and admiration.


The hero flower of Mother’s Day, carnations signify love, fascination, distinction, protection, healing, and strength. In 1907, Anna Jarvis, the founder of Mother’s Day, sent 500 white carnations (her mother’s favourite flower) to every mother in her West Virginia congregation on the anniversary of her mother’s death. And there are as many meanings as there are colours. The pink carnation explicitly represents a mother’s love, but red, which symbolises affection and admiration, is another good choice.

Pure Delight Bouquet in Vase


Lilies most commonly mean devotion or purity, though meaning can vary by type of lily, culture, and colour. For example, lilies are associated with rebirth and motherhood because of the Greek myth of Hera and Zeus. Pink lilies stand for love, femininity and admiration. So they’re the perfect gift for Mum and any female role models you look up to.



Tulips have many meanings — and each differs depending on the colour you choose. Purple represents royalty and rebirth. Orange, understanding and appreciation. Each colour is as unique as Mum. No matter what colour or variety you choose, tulips are the quintessential spring flower, sure to bring Mum plenty of joy!
