Flowers and Mother’s Day: Which Flowers Are the Right Ones?

Summer Fiesta Bouquet

Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and flowers are one of the most common gifts from coast to coast. According to, Mother’s Day ranks just behind Christmas and Hanukah and ahead of Valentine’s Day in terms of the percentage of all transactions in a year and dollar volume, making it the second busiest season for florists. You want to choose a bouquet that will make the special mom in your life smile, but how do you pick the perfect one?

SheKnows says that it’s best to choose a Mother’s Day bouquet based on the traditional meaning of well-known flowers. Roses, for example, have long been associated with motherhood, and so are one of the leading options for Mother’s Day flowers. Lilacs symbolize the love between a mother and her child, and irises stand for affection and warmth. Keep this in mind, but remember that your mom’s favorite flower is always the right choice.
