Mother's Day Flowers

Every day is an opportunity to thank our mothers for their hard work, patience, understanding and care. Their unconditional love and constant support is something that we should celebrate at all times, but above all, it should be celebrated on Mother’s Day. The second Sunday in May is the most important day of the year for showering mothers everywhere with love, attention, and gratitude. The best way to spoil your mother is to treat her with a fresh bouquet of vibrant, vividly coloured flowers. To this end, we have designed a diverse range of fantastic flowers in boxes, baskets and bouquets which are ideal gifts for the mother in your life- from your grandmother, stepmother, mother-in-law, to mother of your child, or simply a maternal figure in your life who has been an inspiration. When you know your mum is the best, send her the best.

I want to be traditional- what is the traditional Mother’s Day flower?

In Australia, the chrysanthemum is the most celebrated maternal flower. Not only does the name include the word ‘mum’, their brightly coloured petals and seasonal availability make them the ideal flower for Mother’s Day. In America, the flower for Mother’s Day is a carnation, but make sure you subtly discern whether your mother likes carnations or not- these flowers are strictly a love or hate bloom.
