Best blooms for Mother’s Day gifts


other's Day is right around the corner, falling this year on Sunday, March 26th. Have you bought

your mum a gift yet? The gift of flowers will show your mother how much you appreci- ate all that she does for you throughout the year. Give your mum a special bouquet of flowers this year, and take into consideration the significance of each type of flower. Here we list some of the best flowers for your mum on Mother's Day...

ROSES Roses have long been associated with

motherhood, making them a popular choice on Mother's Day. Roses were sacred to the Greek goddess Isis, seen as the ideal mother, and they also symbolise the Virgin Mary. Pink roses signify grace, elegance and appreciation, while yellow roses symbolise friendship and joy, so both colours are per- fect to give your mum.

LILACS Mother's Day flowers don't end with roses. Another elegant choice is the lilac. You may have heard that lilacs symbolise new love (which is why they are popular at weddings). However, they also signify love between mother and child, making these beauti- ful flowers a special choice on Mother's Day.

IRISES The iris symbolis- es affection and warmth, and some Christians associate the iris with the Virgin Mary. These gorgeous flowers come in a rainbow of colours, though white and blue irises tend to be more popular for Mother's Day.


In China, orchids are a symbol for many chil- dren, and they also signify refinement and beauty. Every mother will love a bouquet of these exotic flowers for Mother's Day.

TULIPS Tulips are traditionally associated with new life, charity and spring. With their grace and beauty, these flowers are always a popular option for Mother's Day. When you're shopping for Mother's Day

flowers you can also consider your mother's favourite colour: Daffodils or sunflowers are pretty choices for mums who love yellow; blue hydrangeas, pink Gerbera daisies and red peonies are also colourful flowers that your Mum will love.

BLOOMING PLANTS Bouquets aren't the end-all when it comes to Mother's Day flowers. You can also shop for blooming plants such as azaleas and hy- acinths for Mother's Day - they're beautiful and easy to care for, and last longer than a traditional bouquet. Consider outdoor plants and bushes that

your mum can plant in her garden as well, such as miniature roses. Mini roses are often sold as houseplants but can be transplanted outdoors for the full sunlight and healthy humidity that they need. No matter what type of flowers you buy

for your mum, give them with love. Write her a personal card or note instead of store- bought verse to tell her how much you love and appreciate her.
