What mother doesn't appreciate receiving a beautiful gift on 
Mother's Day? But what do you get her? You're not sure of her 
size and you're pretty sure that any clothing item you'd pick 
out would be all wrong anyway. She's got plenty of bubble bath, 
a library full of books, and her taste in music is beyond your 
comprehension, so a CD is out. You're in luck, though. Your 
florist has the perfect solution-flowers!

The fact is, Mother's Day is one of the busiest holidays for 
florists because flowers are the perfect gift for any mom-yours, 
your spouse's, or your own wife. In terms of flower and plant 
purchases, Mother's Day is second only to the Christmas and 
Chanukah season. Flower and plant purchases for Mother's Day 
total a whopping 22 percent of total purchases throughout the 
year. Of those flowers, 64 percent are purchased by men. And, of 
course, 94 percent are bought as gifts with 6 percent being for 
the purchaser herself. Here's where those floral gifts are going:

* Mom is getting 56 percent of them.

* 23 percent of them are bought for a spouse or significant 

* 17 percent are for a relative.

* 4 percent go to friends.

Okay, so now you know that flowers are the way to go for Mother's 
Day, but that leaves a lot of questions still unanswered. Do you 
get fresh flowers, a potted plant, or something for her garden? 
If you choose a potted plant, should it be a flowering plant? 
Here are a few statistics that might help you make those 
decisions as well.

* Fresh flowers comprise 45 percent of floral and plant purchases 
for Mother's Day. 41 percent are mixed flowers, 33 percent are 
roses, 10 percent are carnations, 2 percent are orchids, 1 
percent are chrysanthemums or daisies, 1 percent are lilies, and 
12 percent are other types of single flowers.

* Bedding and garden plants are 37 percent of the purchases. 15 
percent of those are geraniums, 15 percent are impatiens, and 12 
percent are petunias. The remaining 58 percent are other 

* Flowering and green houseplants make up 18 percent of Mother's 
Day purchases. Of the flowering houseplants, 12 percent are 
azaleas, 5 percent are African violets, 5 percent are lilies, 3 
percent are chrysanthemums, and the remaining 75 percent are a 
variety of other plants.

If those statistics still leave you wondering what kind of 
flowers to get, keep in mind that flowers are generally 
universal. Almost everyone loves flowers, regardless of the kind 
or color. And, your florist can help you choose the perfect 
floral gift for the mom in your life-even if that mom is you!
