A Mother’s Day Guide to Speaking the Language of Flowers

It probably won’t come as a surprise that clovers mean good luck and roses symbolize love, but did you know that a cactus means endurance and a sunflower signifies loyalty? During the Victorian era, The Language of Flowers was utilized to create a language for friends, family, and lovers to replace words.

This Mother’s Day Calyx Flowers can help you express how much mom means to you, with more than just words. Send her wishes of love (roses), prosperity (lilies) and strength (alstroemeria) with the Happy Mother’s Day Bouquet. This bouquet is layered with Asiatic Lilies, roses and alstroemeria- – all pink- – and is featured in an exclusive, hand painted, “Happy Mother’s Day” vase by Mississippi artist Gail Pitman.

Express her understanding (hydrangea), saintliness (delphinium), love (rose) and protection (Queen Ann’s Lace) with the All About Mom Bouquet. With 27 stems of blooms this bouquet says it all and is shipped complete with a buttery-yellow garden urn featuring a raised trellis design and pedestal base.

To thank Mom for the faith, hope, wisdom and valor (an Iris means all of these) she has provided, a bouquet of Irises will say it perfectly. Calyx Flower’s Iris Illumination Bouquet features ten cobalt blue iris stems coupled with lavender limonium delivered with a ceramic vase creating an eye-popping display guaranteed to leave a lasting impression.

Can’t decide which floral gift says the most about Mom? Send Calyx Flower’s Year of Flowers collection and she’ll be reminded for an entire year just how much she means to you. Choices include the new and improved Year of Flowers with bigger bouquets than ever offered before or specific floral collections, including the Year of Gerbera Daisies, Orchids, Tropicals, or Roses.
