Are you wondering what to get the special lady in your life for Mother’s Day?
Flowers are a favorite gift for most moms no matter who you buy for — mom, stepmom, grandmother, godmother, aunt, dog mom, you name it.
We're not talking about a cookie-cutter bouquet here. Instead, this year, send Mom something truly unique.
In this article, we will discuss unique flowers to gift this year and a gift suggestion if flowers aren’t Mom’s thing.
Some of the most popular flowers to gift for Mother’s Day include:
Even though these flowers are beautiful, are you tired of sending mom the same flowers? So give your flowers a new twist this year by sending something different!
Moms are like flowers; no two are alike. So think outside the box when choosing Mother's Day flowers for your one-of-a-kind mom.
While we love creating unique and beautiful floral arrangements, giving mom a blooming plant will extend the life of your gift from a week or so, to months and even years.
Botanica Floral + Home is a professional florist that provides a wide selection of flowers and botanicals that are both unique and beautiful … just like mom.

Anthuriums, also known as flamingo flowers or Hawaiian love plants, are grown for their brightly colored flower spathes and ornamental dark green leaves.
When left on the plant, this plant's "flowers" are some of the longest-lasting on earth, so their dazzling color will last for months. With its open heart-shaped flowers, the Anthurium symbolizes hospitality and abundance.
While not as long lasting as a cut flower, they still have a substantial vase life and can upgrade any floral arrangement to something truly special.
Some colors of anthuriums include:
At any given time, anthuriums plants can have dozens of blooms!
It is impossible to compare orchids with anything else. They are:
Did you know that orchids comprise one of the two largest families of flowering plants on earth?! Although there are many orchid species, they all share similar physical characteristics. Their tall, gently curving stems are covered with blooms in solid colors, stripes or speckles, and the petals and sepals are usually arranged in threes.
Orchids were once rare and expensive but are now among the most popular potted plants worldwide.
While the most commonly grown orchids are the Phalaenopsis, or moth orchid, the lady slipper, cymbidium and oncidium varietes also make great house plants and gifts for mom.
All of these orchids make great cut flowers and are stunning when used in a floral arrangement.
Blooming branches come from the age-old practice of “forcing branches.” This is when non-essential branches are pruned from flowering trees and shrubs and placed in vases. It won't be long before the buds open, filling the room with sweet blossoms.
Some of the more common blooming branches include:
Easy to bring into bloom, these branches are usually two to three feet, heavily budded, and their flowers will open gradually over a few days.
When you first receive blooming branches, there are a few steps to take:
In early spring, flowering quince is one of the first shrubs to bloom and one of our favorites!
It’s a multi-stemmed shrub with beautiful …
… petals, complemented by shiny, dark green foliage.
Flowering quince is easy to grow and has thorns, similar to roses. The branches are loaded with hardy, tough, and long-lasting blooms.
You can pair blooming branches with a multitidue of other flowers but just a vase of branches on their own make a beautiful display.
Hellebore is also known as the “Lenten Rose.” These vigorous plants are available in a stunning and sophisticated array of colors from white to almost black, as well as spotted, speckled and stripped.
Hellebores usually bloom in early winter in mild climates and late winter or very early spring, where the ground freezes hard. At a time when flowers are scarce, they are long-lived and resistant to deer and voles.
They also make an excellent cut flower and are one of our all-time favorite flowers to use in arrangements.
Although flowers are always a lovely and festive gesture, they're not for everyone.
Instead, why not send something to brighten up mom's space for much longer? Add a houseplant to your mom's home this year to give it a longer-lasting life.
A houseplant can live for decades with good care, getting bigger and better as it ages.
A few ideas of great houseplants to give include:
While a hydrangea is not really a house plant, it can be enjoyed indoors while blooming and then be planted in the garden for many years of enjoyment!
