Thank you for being who you are

We love how this flower has an almost crushed velvet texture with a weird and wonderful flame-like shape. The symbol of boldness, a Celosia is not afraid to flaunt its striking, flamboyant characteristic. Definitely, the flower of choice if your mother is the type who immediately lightens up any room she walks into.

2. Delphiniums

Thank you for your guidance

This modest flower was once gathered to communicate cheer and goodwill towards others. Like many mothers, it too celebrates practically anything positive and is always there to remind you to enjoy the lighter side of life, even when troubles get you down.

4. Hydrangea

Thank you for your understanding me

The similarity of a mother and a hydrangea is how they brighten up our lives with their honest presence. Eager to develop a deeper understanding with people, its burst of blossoms is unapologetic when it comes to emotions. However, you can be sure that it is delivered in the humblest of ways. As the saying goes, a mother knows best.

5. King Protea

The national flower of South Africa, the King Protea flower earned its name from it’s striking petals that resemble a colorful crown. Although its message varies according to the setting, these striking flowers aren’t likely to be forgotten. Include this gorgeous Honey Pot into a Mother’s Day bouquet and see it pop.


Thank you for standing by me

While it’s not the fanciest flower in the garden, a tulip is a regal nature. It has inspired art pieces and secular poems throughout the century, with the Ottoman empire making it as part of its reminder of heaven and eternal life. Seen as a symbol of paradise on earth, a tulip is the best gift for a mother who doesn’t strive to impress anyone but to those that mean dearly.
