Mother’s Day 2022 is right around the corner. This May 8th, show mom or the mother figure in your life just how much she means to you by sending one of the most time-honored gifts: a beautiful bouquet of Mother’s Day flowers.

Would she adore an impressive bouquet of long-stemmed roses, or would she prefer a potted Bromeliad that will live for seasons to come? Whether you want to surprise mom with Mother’s Day plants or some Spring-fresh blooms, you’ve come to the right place.

Make her day sweeter by sending the best and most sought-after flowers this Mother’s Day.

Roses for Mother’s Day

Pink, yellow, red, white, orange, or rainbow-colored: roses are a classic Mother’s Day gift. She will be charmed with a delivery of pink Mother’s Day roses, which are typically sent to express appreciation and gratitude. If the mother in your life doesn’t think pink, consider a gift delivery of lovely orange or yellow roses to brighten her day. And while the color red is generally associated with romance, it also stands for pure love, so you cannot go wrong with a glass vase of red roses for Mother’s Day.

Mother’s Day Carnations

Carnations, with their pretty fringed petals, are considered the official flower of Mother’s Day. After roses, these unassuming blooms are the second most popular in terms of national flower deliveries. Carnations may not be as flashy as lilies or roses, but they make excellent accent flowers in mixed floral bouquets. Pink and red carnations are the go-to colors for celebrating mothers everywhere.

Lilies for Mom

With their distinctive shape and delicate fragrance, lilies are an elegant addition to any Mother’s Day arrangement. There are exotic tiger lilies, stargazer lilies, and multi-colored varieties that will bring a smile to her face. Always delivered in bud, these gorgeous flowers will bloom just in time for the special holiday. 


Orchids make a sophisticated floral gift, and you will find these gorgeous flowers in just about every shade, from vibrant fuchsia and orange to white and yellow. Some species have multi-colored petals, and the best part is they will stay in bloom for several weeks. If you’re worried that flowers aren’t enough to show your love, one of our Mother’s Day gift baskets is always a nice complement.


Tulips are quintessential spring flowers that are ideal for moms who love color. Their bell-shaped petals come in a variety of hues, including pink, red, coral, purple, white, and a pale yellow. These cheerful blooms can be sent freshly cut for a stunning centerpiece or as potted bulbs for weeks of pure enjoyment.
