Mother’s Day Plants to Celebrate All the Women in Your Life

May 4, 2021


Mother’s Day plants help express your appreciation for the woman who has done so much for you.  But Mother's Day can also be a celebration of other amazing women in your life who have helped nurture and support you.

Consider celebrating the following women with  Mother’s Day plants on Sunday, May 9. 

6 women to honor with Mother's Day plants

Family members

Use Mother’s Day to celebrate the other special women in your family. An aunt, grandmother, or even a cousin or sister — all the women in your family are fair game to praise and pamper on this day.

Choose a long-lasting Mother's Day plant to show your lasting love for them.

A close friend 

Show your mom friend you're thinking of her this Mother’s Day with a thoughtful card or gift. For a busy mom, a beautiful Mother’s Day plant like an orchid planter provides long-lasting beauty in her home for months or even years, with minimal maintenance. 


A mentor

If you’re still in touch with any coaches, teachers or professors from your school days, send them a Mother’s Day note or present to thank them for supporting you and countless others through the years. A Mother’s Day plant is also great for a sunny classroom. Succulents love bright spots, and the pot of this kalanchoe succulent sends the right message "Thank you for helping me grow."


Your boss

Women in business often don’t get the recognition they deserve so reach out to a current or former supervisor who helped you along the way. Giving a potted plant for Mother’s Day is a great choice here because it’s the perfect addition to an office or workspace.

A co-worker

We’ve all got a "work mom." If you're missing yours right now, send her an anthurium for her home office! She'll appreciate knowing you're thinking of her even if you haven't seen her in a while.


Your favorite mom-to-be

Have a close friend or relative who is expecting? Let them know you share in their excitement by sending them a special Mother's Day plant.  

Why more people are choosing Mother’s Day plants

Potted plants are growing in popularity thanks to their long-lasting appearance and easy care. While cut flowers fade within a few days, orchids and anthuriums keep their blooms for up to three months or more with proper care. They can even bloom again, provided you follow these simple reblooming guidelines.

Your gift will easily show mom (or any of your special ladies) that you’ve been thinking of them long after the holiday.
