Mother's Day Flower Meanings

For Mother's Day this year we've been busy choosing blooms and boxing them up ready for your lovely mums to enjoy. We decided on a selection of British grown spring flowers and roses in the softest shade of pink.

We thought we'd note down some of the flower meanings of the blooms in this letterbox bunch...

Pink Hyacinth Hyacinths are a symbol of sincerity and in the Victorian Language of Flowers, the pink hyacinth means play and recreation time.

Soft Pink Roses Roses in a soft pink shade symbolise gentleness and joy, admiration and of course, love.

Blue Veronica The Veronica flower symbolises faithfulness, while the colour blue conveys trust.

Yellow Narcissus In the Victorian Language of Flowers the Narcissus flower represents respect and devotion.

Cream Tulips The double-petal Smith & Munson cream tulips signify eternal bonds and unconditional love.

Alstroemeria The Alstroemeria or Peruvian Lily symbolises strength and mutual support.

Eucalyptus Eucalyptus foliage not only smells incredibly fresh but is associated with healing and rejuvenation.

We hope your mothers enjoy the flowers as much as we enjoyed choosing them!
