Aries (March 21 – April 19): Gerbera

The gerbera flower, also known as the African daisy, is a bold flower for a bold mom. She's always on the go and taking life by the horns, even when things get hard. She has an infectious positivity and is constantly on the move, and she needs a flower to match her fiery temperament.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Hydrangea

A Taurus mom is usually the powerful backbone of her family, and she's particularly deserving of a gorgeous flower that'll appeal to her elegant sensibilities. While the hydrangea may look delicate, its strength comes from being made up of a bunch of smaller flowers. Your mom also has unseen might that should be acknowledged more often.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Azalea

Gemini moms are social butterflies, and the right flower for them is something playful and inviting. That's why a brightly colored azalea is such a great match. They have an incredible scent and an alluring shape that'll make your mom want to show the flower off to all of her friends. The more vibrant, the better.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Chrysanthemum

Cancer moms are the most caring, empathetic people you'll ever meet, which unfortunately can also mean that they soak up everyone else's emotions like a sponge. To bring some joy to her this mother's day, try giving her a radiant chrysanthemum. It'll brighten up her day and help her to dispel any negative energy she's picked up along the way.

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): Tulip

A Leo mom is beloved by all and adores playing the host, so she'll want a Mother's Day flower that's attention-catching and stands out in a crowd. Like a tulip thrives by soaking up the rays of the sun, your mom is happiest when she is showered with affection. A tulip achieves just that.

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sep. 22): Calla Lily

A Virgo mom typically prefers to keep things tidy and minimalistic, so she'll prefer a flower that fits right in with her aesthetic.

Libra (Sep. 23 – Oct. 22): Carnation

A Libra mom will appreciate any flower you give her, but we think a carnation is especially appropriate for the mother who always puts others first and does everything in her power to keep the peace. She loves simplicity and is always sharing her kindness, and a carnation is a kindness repaid.

There's something a little bit mysterious yet captivating about the orchid that makes it perfect for a Scorpio mom. She tends to keep her distance from everyone but her closest friends and the family she cherishes. Not everyone can get close to her, and she'd prefer to keep things that way, but she'll be captivated by this unique flower.
