flowers

The tradition of sending flowers on Mothers Day began with the sending of carnations on the first official Mother's Day service on May 10, 1908. Miss Anna Jarvis sent 500 white carnations to the Andrews Methodist Episcopal Church, in Grafton, West Virginia. The flowers were meant to be distributed amongst the mothers. Miss Anna Jarvis continued with the tradition of sending carnation flowers to the Andrews Church. She sent over 10,000 carnations in the subsequent years.

The most common flowers for sending mother on the Mothers Day are thus white carnations. A bouquet of mature blooming roses also serve the great cause of thanking the mother for all her love and care. Spring flowers like tulips, scented narcissi and daffodils are also the favorite flowers for sending on Mother'S Day.

Still there is no rigid rule as to what flowers are are to be gifted on the Mothers Day. You can choose any flower for your mother, probably considering her personal likes and dislikes. Further, it is better if you are aware of the flower meanings so that you can choose the appropriate flower for your mother.
