Here is the Mother’s Day Flowers and Their Traditional Meanings
Carnations: The lovely carnation signifies purity, love, and faith. It also denotes beauty and charity. This is the most requested flower for Mother's Day and pink carnations have the most significance. According to legend, they first sprouted from the tears of Virgin Mary when she cried over her son Jesus's death. This has made the carnation the symbol of a mother's undying love for her children.
Roses: A more traditional mother may prefer roses. Roses are the most often received flower on Mother's Day after the carnation. The most traditional gifted rose is the Red rose. Red roses are associated with romantic love and the lighter red or the deep pink colors denote gratitude and appreciation.
Orchids: The lovely orchid represents love, beauty, and luxury as well as strength. It's also the Chinese symbol for lots of children.
