Happy Mother's day to all mom in the world. "Official' mother's day is on every 2nd Sunday of May here in Malaysia. wanna share some info's coz I think many of us still unsure what flowers (usually the confusion is between Carnation vs Rose) to buy for your mom or wife on mother's day. Giving flowers on Mother's day is a token of thanks for all her love and care [of course it's best if you accompany the flower with other present as well...mom loves gifts that they can wear/keep ;p]
It was the inherent quality of sweetness, purity and endurance that made the carnations so popular on Mother's Day. For that reason, carnations are the preferred flower gifts on Mother's day. Carnation symbolizes pride and beauty. Further carnations in different colors carry different meanings. It is thus advised that you are aware of the meanings of flowers before you choose a flower gift for your mother. A red carnation symbolizes love, pride and admiration; a pink carnation symbolizes the love of a woman or a mother; a purple carnation symbolizes capriciousness; a yellow carnation symbolizes disdain, rejection or disappointment; while a white carnation symbolizes innocence and pure love. A striped carnation conveys refusal.
Rose signifies love in its various forms in general, not specifically for mother's love only. Its symbolism varies based on color, variety and number. So we can say that it is not wrong to give rose on Mother's Day, but it's just Carnation is better ;) Furthermore Carnation last longer than rose...[Excerpts of The Meaning of Flower is taken from here.]
