Why Are Carnations Used for Mother's Day?

We can thank Anna Jarvis for making carnations the go-to Mother's Day flower. Back in 1908, Jarvis spearheaded the first Mother's Day celebration in the United States. These lovely spring blooms were her mother’s favorite, and now the rest is history. Mom and carnations go hand in hand.

What Do Carnation Flowers Mean?

Regarded as one of the oldest cultivated flowers, carnations have a rich and colorful history. The ancient Greeks considered the carnation to be a "heavenly flower" and dubbed it the "flower of the Gods". While carnations are a popular Mother's Day flower, it's important to know the meaning behind each tender petal.

  • Red carnations represent deep admiration and love.
  • White flowers represent pure love and luck. They also symbolize remembrance and are used to honor mothers who are no longer with us.
  • Pink flowers represent a mother's never-ending love and gratitude.Mother's Day carnations grow in a variety of colors and ProFlowers offers plenty of them to make Mother's Day extra special.
