What flowers are best for Mother’s Day?

A special mum needs a special gift – and sending bouquet of fresh Mother’s Day flowers is as good as it gets when choosing a present that expresses just how much the special lady in your life. After all, few things beat that special feeling of having Mother’s Day flowers delivered to your door by a local florist.

However, with so many flowers to choose from, how do you select the flowers that will make your flowers truly memorable?

The good news is that Direct2florist’s Mother's Day collection features a wide range of seasonal gifts for you to choose from – all made with care by a local florist. Whether your mum loves a potted plant present, or a beautifully wrapped bouquet of fresh flowers, our range includes a selection of the most popular and best flowers for the big occasion.

Here’s our list of the best flowers for Mother’s Day:


Roses aren’t just for Valentine’s Day! These enduringly popular flowers make the perfect, failsafe gift for mum, especially when you eschew the red roses of the romance and opt for favourite colours including a range of pinks and peaches. White varieties are also popular, but whatever colours you choose, roses are always a great choice and guaranteed to make mum smile!hotlist!


Carnations are the flower that started it all – in the United States of America anyway! In 1907, Anna Jarvis, the founder of Mother’s Day, sent 500 white carnations (her mother’s favourite flower) to every mother at her West Virginia congregation on the anniversary of her mother’s death. For Mother’s Day, pink carnations are popular, possibly because they represent a mother’s love, while white symbolises pure or unconditional love and good luck. What’s more, carnations will last long after Mother’s Day itself is over – they’re one of the longer lasting cut flowers that you can buy.


Florists love Mother’s Day because it falls at a time when spring flowers are in full bloom – which is perhaps why tulips are so popular. It could also be because they make a gorgeous gift and are available in a full rainbow of colours!


Another colourful choice that will also last long after Mother’s Day is over, gerberas are guaranteed to make mum smile. Once again pink is a clear favourite (there’s a theme here!) or you could go for bright orange if you’re looking for something summery. With a colour to suit every mum, the choice is yours!


The next in our rundown of Mother’s Day chart toppers is the lily – a flower that adds a touch of elegance – and fragrance – to any bouquet. These big blooms often come in bud to start with but once they open up they are truly a wonder to behold. Lilies are available in a variety of soft and bold colours so you can make her bouquet as perfect as your mum!


Mums love chrysanthemums! A classic Mother’s Day flower, they look brilliant in mixed bouquets and are included in Direct2florist’s Mother’s Day collection in a variety of shapes, sizes and colours so you are sure to find the perfect one.

In addition to those mentioned above, a notable mention should go to freesias, hyacinths and orchids, which are all favourites of our mums in the Direct2florist office! And finally, don’t forget to add a vase, container or even a box of chocolates to make your Mother’s Day flower delivery extra special!

Whatever you choose, there’s no better way to spoil mum than with a stunning bouquet of flowers from Direct2florist.
