Popular Mother’s Day Flowers

It’s known to many that flowers are a timeless gift that can communicate your love and gratitude for your mother on Mother’s Day.

But with so many different flowers to choose from, how do you know which ones are the best for this special occasion? Most people hop onto online florists websites – may we suggest Simply Blooms? – and scroll through hundreds of pre-made selections, picking and choosing whichever seems the most attractive.

If you’d like to learn a little more about which flower to pick for your mom on Mother’s Day, here are some of the most notable flowers for this special occasion!


Carnations are a classic choice for Mother’s Day, and they are often associated with love, fascination, and gratitude. These flowers come in a variety of colours, including pink, red, and white, and each colour has a different meaning.

For example, pink carnations represent a mother’s undying love, while red carnations symbolise admiration and respect. White carnations are often used to represent a mother’s pure love and sacrifice. 

Carnations have been used for Mother’s Day since the early 20th century, and they are still a popular choice today. They are affordable, long-lasting, and come in a wide range of colours, making them a versatile choice for any budget or taste.

Roses are yet another classic choice for Mother’s Day, and they are often associated with love, beauty, and passion. Red roses, in particular, symbolise love and romance, while pink roses represent gratitude and appreciation. These two are the most common colours to be found in any Mother’s Day flower arrangement.

They’re a versatile choice for most occasions, as they’re available in many colours, sizes and styles. They are a luxurious and timeless gift that any mother would appreciate!


Lilies are often associated with beauty, grace, and femininity, and are also another popular choice for Mother’s Day. One of the most popular types of lilies for Mother’s Day is the stargazer lily. These large, showy flowers are known for their intense fragrance and stunning pink and white petals.

Pink lilies represent love and admiration, yellow lilies signify joy and happiness, and white ones symbolise purity. They’re also known to represent resilience as they’re long-lasting – but they also make for an especially beautiful gift when arranged in a vase or bouquet.


Chrysanthemums, or “mums” for short, are a popular choice for Mother’s Day in Asia, especially in countries like Japan and China. It’s even in the name!

These flowers are often associated with longevity, happiness, and joy. In Japan, chrysanthemums are a symbol of the emperor, and they are often used to represent the royal family. While in China, chrysanthemums are often used in tea and medicine – hence, they are associated with long life and good health.
