Hanging Baskets

Flowers are a classic go-to present for Mother’s Day, but instead of gifting a bouquet that only lasts for a few weeks, pick some pretty hanging baskets to last until autumn. We have so many beautiful new annual flowers with trailing vines that look fabulous in hanging planters.

Some of our favorite hanging basket plants include:

  • Coleus
  • Petunias
  • Superbells
  • Geraniums

You can also choose your own plant combos and create a custom hanging basket in Mom’s favorite colors!

Design a Terrarium

Grab a glass terrarium bowl and fill it with layers of sand, peat moss, pretty pebbles, and an assortment of tiny succulents or Tillandsia. This creative DIY Mother’s Day gift has the extra sentimentality of a handmade present. Write some care instructions inside the card so that she knows how to keep it growing—our staff can provide you with all the information you need.

Mixed Planter Arrangements

We have loads of colorful mixed flower and foliage arrangements in decorative pots and ornate urns. If Mom loves subtle, monochromatic color palettes, opt for one of our all-white flower containers—they’re so effortlessly elegant and dreamy! If she loves high-impact color, there’s no shortage of options for mixed containers. From purple ornamental grasses, rainbow coleus, lemon-lime Creeping Jenny vines, and beautiful blooms in every color of the rainbow, there are so many spectacular arrangements that won’t just brighten Mom’s day—they’ll brighten her whole summer!

Wind Chimes

If mom loves spending time out in the garden or entertaining on the patio, windchimes will add such a lovely ambiance to her outdoor space. There’s something so tranquil about the sound of tinkling chimes on a sunny, breezy afternoon outside. Mom will love one for Mother’s Day!

Tillandsia and Hangers

Tillandsia are such peculiar yet beautiful plants. Their stiff, twisting, stringy leaves have unique shapes, and with no root system, they don’t require a pot full of soil. To water your air plants, simply soak them in water for a few hours every week or two. We have plenty of pretty hangers to display your Tillandsia, like shiny metal coils or jellyfish hangers. See if you can find one that’s in bloom—the pink and purple flowers are so sweet for Mother’s Day!

For the mother-in-law with a good sense of humor, get her a Sansevieria—also known as the “Mother-in-Law’s Tongue!” This attractive, low-maintenance houseplant can thrive off low light levels and infrequent watering, so the care requirements are a breeze. As a bonus, Sansevieria are incredibly powerful air purifiers.
