It happens every year: Mother’s Day is approaching and you are having a hard time finding the perfect way to express your love and gratitude towards your mom. While roses, carnations and lilies are loved for good reason, they may not be a true express of your unique relationship. By finding and giving flowers that reflect her personality, you can let her know exactly how you feel.
Let’s review three flowers that you can likely find in your own backyard, along with a trio of flowering plants that you can plant to remind her how you feel year after year.
Flowers You Can Find In Your Neighborhood
These blossoms are common across North America, making them a cinch to find when you want to create your own Mother’s Day bouquet.
These perennials are easy to find across North America and are often seen alongside other early bloomers like daffodils and tulips. They have single flowers that are cup or star shaped with wide petals, and they really enjoy full sun. Look for them in fields and yards where they have been given a chance to spread.
These are a classic choice for Mother’s Day, with large, fragrant blooms and delicate shades of pink, white and red. They love a sunny location with well-drained soil and good air circulation around them. If you don’t see any in your neck of the woods, visit a nursery or check out our selection of peony bouquets.
Who doesn’t love a sunflower or two? These fast-growing, easy-to-maintain blooms bring a smile to anyone’s face. Because so many people harvest and spread their seeds, it’s not uncommon to find these growing wild, in spots that get at least six hours of sunlight daily. Of course, we also offer sunflower bouquets if you can’t bright them yourself.
Three Mother’s Day Perennials We Love
Maybe you want to give your mother a plant that will grow and thrive just like you have under her care. These long-lasting perennials will bloom year after year, and they require less maintenance than a lot of flowering plants.
These flowering shrubs have brightly-colored blooms and can thrive in a wide range of growing condition outdoors, while bonsai varieties allow you to bring their beauty indoors. We offer delivery azaleas so you can show her that you care from anywhere.
The magnolia is known as a symbol of strength and beauty, making them a perfect expression of your mother’s love. These low-maintenance trees adapt to a range of growing conditions and they’re perfect as a centerpiece for almost any garden, and their fragrant blooms are a constant reminder of what your mother means to you.
These may be common, but that doesn’t mean they’re ordinary. Hydrangeas are associated with gratitude, grace, and abundance, and these emotions are expressed through large clusters of blooms in shades of blue, white, pink, and purple, and that means it’s easy to find the exact color palette for mom. Once planted, they’re low-maintenance and can thrive in a variety of environments.
Not everyone has time to find and assemble the perfect bouquet themselves, and that’s why we offer a great selection of Mother’s Day Bouquets, along with an array of unique flowering plants you can have delivered.
