Mother’s Day is the perfect time to let Mom know how much you love her and flower bouquets are traditionally the gift chosen to present to Mom on her special day. If you want to give your mom a gift that will last longer and bring her more cheer than a bouquet, a potted flower plant is an excellent option. Whether your mom loves to garden, or just likes to have plants around the house, here are some of our favorite potted flowers:
If your mom likes roses, then a potted mini rose plant is the perfect choice with which to present her on her special day! Miniature rose plants, like this beautiful pink option, give mom roses that will last much longer and remind Mom of how much she is loved every time she looks at them. If you are looking for something that is more personalized to Mother’s Day, this #1 Mom rose potted plant comes complete with magnets that Mom can keep and put on her fridge to see every single day.
Bonsais are a beautiful way to bring outdoor plants inside, on a downsized scale! If your mom is partial to the bright and fragrant presence of gardenias, a tree like this gardenia bonsai tree will provide an everlasting gardenia bush that Mom can enjoy every day, in her own home. If gardenias are not your mom’s cup of tea, you have many floral bonsai options such as fuschia bougainvilleas, vibrant azaleas and green juniper. Just buy with caution if your mom has pets, as some of these blooms, such as azaleas, are toxic to furry and feathered critters.
