Mother’s Day Flowers and Their Meanings

Mother’s Day is a special day because mother is someone who takes care of us and always thinks about us and our future. Every mother loves her child to the moon and back, unconditionally till her last breath. A mother’s love is borderless and will never end.
As Mother’s Day approaches, we take some time to show our gratitude to our mothers and mother-figures who have raised us. No words are enough to express our gratitude towards them, so we gift them with respect and validation for their best practices in raising us. Finding the right Mother’s Day gift to show how much you appreciate her is not always the easiest thing to do. When you need a perfect gift to give your mom, flowers are always a great choice. The ultimate Mother’s Day gift is always appreciated and received with a smile.


Perfect Mother’s Day Flowers

Mother’s Day has different meanings and origins in various cultures. Around the world, Mother’s Day is celebrated on different days, but most commonly in March and May.

There are many types of flowers that you can give to your mother on Mother’s Day. Since different flowers have different meanings, make sure you choose wisely.


Roses are one of the most popular flowers to give to someone you love. And if you’re looking for the perfect flower to express your love for your mom on her special day, you might want to pick up a bouquet of Roses.
Traditionally seen as a symbol of love, Roses have a wide variety of meanings, depending on the color of the flower.

While red Roses are traditionally associated with romantic love, pink Roses are ideal for family members to express your warm feelings in a solemn manner. Some of the meanings attached to pink Roses include admiration, gratitude, appreciation and care.

Yellow Roses symbolize friendship and caring. If your mom is your best friend, make sure she knows it.

White Roses stand for pure and honest love. They symbolize the virtues of motherhood and family life. White Roses are a simple and nice gesture to show your mom she’s special to you.

Orange Roses are used to send a message of enthusiasm. They can also mean “I am very proud of you”.


Chrysanthemums are also popular Mother’s Day gifts, especially in Australia where they are known as “Mums”. Other than having the word “mum” in their name, Chrysanthemums bloom in May just in time to celebrate Mother’s Day! They are the perfect gift to show your mom how loyal, loving and trusting she is.

Chrysanthemums have different meanings across cultures and religions. They can symbolize fidelity, friendship, modesty, loyalty, devotion, cheerfulness, longevity, good spirits, happiness, joy and beauty.


Bright, fresh Orchids make a thoughtful gift for any type of occasion, and Mother’s Day is no exception. Orchids are beautiful and long-lasting, thus symbolizing a mother’s love that can withstand any storm. There are over 25,000 species of Orchids that are officially recognized and even more hybrids, but no matter what species you looked at, Orchids are always exquisite.

Purple Orchids represent admiration and respect, so they will remind your mom that she is loved and appreciated.

Orchid varieties in shades of pink and white make meaningful choices for Mother’s Day, too. Pink Orchids symbolize grace, love, joy and happiness, while white Orchids are a symbol of purity and humility.


Tulips are perfectly suited to the Mother’s Day celebration as they usually bloom in spring. If your mom is a good-hearted person, Tulips are the best choice. As one of the most loved flowers, a bouquet of Tulips will be a wonderful gift for her.

Pink Tulips symbolize affection, happiness and caring, making them ideal to celebrate motherhood.
