I thought a mixed bouquet of carnations, your birth flower, would be a fitting gift! Carnations may look fragile because of their delicate ruffled petals and long, slender stems, but they are surprisingly sturdy and long lasting. The flowers vary in shades of pinks, reds, yellows, purples, white and even striped petals. They are also fragrant, possessing a slightly sweet, spicy scent comparable to cloves. The most popular colors are
red ... signifying love
white representing devotion
and pink, a symbol of motherly love and widely used in Mother's Day flower arrangements.
