5 Best Pink Flowers For Mother’s Day

by Haroulla Ellina

From cerise lisianthus to raspberry orchids, baby-pink waxflower and salmon spray roses: you can’t go wrong with our pink picks for Mother’s Day.

Rose is the colour

What is it about pink that makes it so popular with women? If science is to be believed, then a fondness for pink is less socially conditioned than we think. In fact, big studies suggest that there’s something innate in girls which attracts them to pink. The pink trend is borne out here at Flowercard too: the overwhelming number of our Mother’s Day bestsellers feature shades of cerise, salmon, rosé and raspberry.

Long-lasting Mother’s Day pink flowers

So, without taking this all too seriously, let’s lift the lid on our top selling pink floral collection and help you find the perfect gift for Mother’s Day. Plus, every single one of these beauties has an expected shelf life of nearly two weeks, ensuring that Mum can enjoy your gift long after March 19th.


The focal flower of our Truly Beautiful Flowercard is Lisianthus; also known as Eustoma, this floral beauty hails from North America. Affectionately known as ‘lizzi’ by florists, this curious beauty looks a little like a rose but its delicate ruffles hint to its heritage to the violet family.

Also known as the Prairie Gentian, its name translates as ‘appreciation’ - making it the perfect way to say the prettiest of pink ‘thank yous’ to your special lady. We love this arrangement, which also features spray carnations, baby’s breath (gypsophila) and cool Chicco Palm.


Cymbidium Orchids to be exact… Despite being the oldest cultivated orchid in the world, the trendy raspberry inner petals of the exotic spears within our Busy Bee arrangement are a close colour match to Viva Magenta, Pantone Colour of the Year 2023, making this arrangement fresh and modern.

Symbolising ‘morality and virtue’, Cymbidium Orchids are a great way to show Mum that (despite all your teen years to the contrary!) mum really does know best. Orchids can be pretty tricky to grow, so if your mum spends more time looking after children than plants, this could be the one.


There’s nothing obviously waxy about this soft and delicate shrub, which is beloved by brides, bridesmaids and even royalty for its romantic, wild sprays. In fact, Princess Beatrice featured Waxflower in her wedding bouquet to Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi in 2020.

Ranging from white and pink through to purple, Chamelaucium uncinatum is an evergreen shrub that hails from Down Under. Placed liberally throughout our bestselling Mum’s A Peach trug arrangement, this pink beauty gives a classy, rustic look that is the perfect complement to the larger, frothier Lisianthus within the arrangement.

Spray Carnations

The world’s second favourite flower (after the rose), and also the world’s oldest cultivated bloom: carnations even featured in Shakespeare’s A Winter’s Tale. Latin for ‘Flower of the Gods’, this description would surely cause this small and delicate flower to blush! Delicate, and timeless, these pink frilly beauties feature in many of our Flowercards, including this bestselling Graceful Joy arrangement.

Spray Roses

Roses are a sure-fire way to win mum’s affection this Mother’s Day, but what is the difference between a rose and a spray rose, we hear you ask? In short; size. Spray roses are their large sisters in miniature, with shorter stems that make them the go-to for corsages, buttonholes and of course, Flowercards!

These long-lasting mini-beauties don’t just come in delicate pink: our Only The Best arrangement features fuchsia spray roses. These, combined with vibrant lime cymbidium orchids and striking purple Veronica spears, create a bold statement that is sure to light up a room - just like your mum.
