Mother’s Day is often a great day to give the gift of a nice bouquet of flowers.
But what do the flowers mean?
Here is our Top 5 Mother’s Day Flowers:
1. Amaryllis: Splendid Beauty and Pride
(Hippeastrum) Amaryllis is derived from the Greek word amarysso meaning ‘to sparkle’. The Amaryllis is similar to the lily but not of the same family. From the tropical region of South America, the Amaryllis is easy to bring to bloom. The flower comes in many colours from red and white, pink, apricot, salmon, rose, burgundy and there are also bi-colour varieties. For the perfect mothers day bouquet we would recommend Red/White flower.
2. Pink Carnations: Mother’s Love.
(Dianthus Caryophyllus) A flower used in Greek Coronation crowns that dates back more than 2,000 years.
There is a belief that Virgin Mary’s Tears lead to their creation on earth. This makes them the ultimate symbol of a mothers undying love.
3. Pink Tulips: Caring
(Tulipa) The flowers are large and often have different colours at the base. The Tulip originated in Southern Europe and Central Asia and were first mentioned in Western Europe around 1554 indicating their rich history.
The Netherlands is currently the worlds largest commercial producer of Tulips.
4. Casa Blanca Lilies: Celebrations
(Lilium ‘Casa Blanca‘)
The lily has often been a sign of love, adoration and affection.
In 1993 the Casa Blanca Lily won the Royal Horticultural Society’s Award of Garden Merit and is known as The best White Oriental Lily.
5. Orchid: Rare and Delicate Beauty
(Orchidaceae) One of the two largest families of flowering plants the Orchid is often known for its elegance and beauty. It is estimated the orchid dates back to over 100 million years.
