Flowers are a must to be gifted over mother’s day because all of us want to delivery our feelings wholeheartedly and from all the deep of our hearts. Here is list of some flowers that can be gifted over Mother’s Day. Although Carnation is the most preferred flower for gifting on Mother’s Day still other flowers are gifted too. Anna Jarvis explained why she chose Carnation as flower for honoring her mother from where the tradition started.

“The white carnation is preferred because it may be thought to typify some of the virtues of motherhood; … whiteness stands for purity; its lasting qualities, faithfulness; its fragrance, love; its wide field of growth, charity; its form, beauty…”
