Flowers are one of the most popular Mother’s Day gifts, and florists come up with a huge range of Mothers Day flowers and bouquets.  Since there will be so many options, we thought we’d give you a few pointers to help you select the perfect flower arrangement for you mother.

If you know your mom’s favorite flower, then this is probably what you should choose to get for her.  If you don’t know her favorite flower, or if your mother does not have any particular favorite, you can use your own judgment and select what you think the most beautiful Mother Day Bouquet for your mother.  If you know her favorite color, then choosing a bouquet with plenty of that color is always a good bet.

Another option is to choose a flower that reminds you of her.  Give your mother a special bouquet, taking into consideration the significance of each type of flower. Here are some of the best flowers for your mom on Mother’s Day, along with a brief description of what these flowers symbolize.

Mothers 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, who is seen as the ideal mother.  Roses are also thought by many to symbolize the Virgin Mary. Pink roses signify grace, elegance and appreciation, while yellow roses symbolize friendship and joy, so both colors are perfect to give your mom.

Lilacs for Mothers Day

Mother’s Day flowers certainly don’t stop with roses. Another elegant flower choice for Mother’s Day is the lilac. You may have heard that lilacs symbolize new love (which is why they are popular at weddings), but they also signify love between mother and child.  This makes lilacs a special choice on Mother’s Day.

Mothers Day Irises

The iris symbolizes affection and warmth, and some Christians also associate the iris with the Virgin Mary. These gorgeous flowers come in a rainbow of colors, though white and blue irises tend to be more popular for Mother’s Day.

Mothers Day Orchids

In China, orchids are a symbol for fertility.  So they may make a great Mother’s Day gift for your mother from you and your siblings.  Orchids also signify refinement and beauty. So every mother will love a bouquet of these exotic flowers for Mother’s Day.

Carnations for Mothers Day

According to Christian legend, pink carnations are believed to have first grown from the ground where the Virgin Mary shed tears over Jesus’ death. Because of this, many believe carnations are a symbol of a mother’s eternal love. Pink carnations, as well as red and white ones, often comprise Mother’s Day bouquets.

Mothers 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.
