Roses in particular are a great flower to convey love, devotion, loyalty, and warm wishes to a special mother. So, with that in mind, here’s the best places to buy roses and ensure a very happy Mother’s Day for someone special!

When is Mother’s Day in 2023?

First things first, when is this holiday? Mother’s Day in the United States usually falls on the second Sunday of May. This year, that is May 14. This is important to note if planning on ordering a Mother’s Day rose bouquet as some online delivery services will not accept same-day orders or deliver arrangements on Sunday so you will need to plan your rose bouquet in advance.

What makes roses special for Mother’s Day?

According to ProFlowers, roses have become a highly popular choice for Mother’s Day bouquets in recent years. This is perhaps because they are considered to be a special celebration flower, due to their elegance, fragrance and sense of luxuriousness.

As well as this, roses have been symbolically linked to motherhood historically. ProFlowers reports that “starting in ancient Greece, roses were thought to be sacred to the goddess Isis (the ideal mother) and Aphrodite (the goddess of love and beauty). Later, during the Middle Ages, the rose was seen as the queen of flowers and the symbol of the Virgin Mary.” Therefore, whether you choose to send pink roses (symbolizing affection and gentleness) or yellow roses (symbolizing friendship), you can’t really go wrong with roses as a Mother’s Day gift.
