Thursday, May 9th, 2013 - Roses Only

Mums come in every shape and variety — from biological mums to adopted mums, steps mum, aunts, grandmothers, godmothers, mother-in-laws, carers, neighbours, mentors and friends. The one thing they have in common is that they all deserve to be honoured on Mother’s Day.

Roses Only has put together an ‘experts guide’ to help you choose the perfect Mother’s Day flowers for the Mum in your life this Sunday.


  • Tulips are a great choice for the spirited and fun loving Mum. These flowers are natural sun seekers and sway their heads towards the sun, seeking out the best angle for light.


  • Lilies symbolise fertility and nurturing. They are the ideal gift for new mums. Their elegant beauty also makes them a stunning choice for your Mum, Step-Mother, Grandma, Aunty, friend or the special woman in your life this Mother’s Day.

  • Pink roses are a favourite choice for Mother’s Day. Their beauty is a perfect reflection of the love and gentle touch of mothers across the world. Pink roses represent grace, elegance, sweetness and poetic romance.


The tradition of giving flowers on Mother’s Day began in 1907 in the US through the actions of a woman named Anna Jarvis. Anna gave out 500 white carnations to all the mothers in her church on the anniversary of the passing of her beloved mother. Today, the giving of flowers is synonymous with Mother’s Day.

The festival of Mother’s Day is celebrated in 46 countries across the world today. While the date varies between countries, the sentiment remains the same. It is the day millions pay tribute to their mothers and thank them for their love, devotion and support.  Roses Only have been delivering Mother’s Day Flowers right across Australia and around the world for the past 17 years.


Roses Only even specialise in flower delivery Adelaide and flower delivery Canberra.
