If you don’t want to opt for the traditional Mother’s Day bouquet this year (or, you’ve gifted them more years than you can count), potted plants are another classic route you can take this Mother’s Day.
Whether she has a budding garden or is eager to add more greenery to her living space, these florals and faunas are sure to please and are equally as pretty as any arrangement — and they last longer, too. From roses and lilies to orchids and succulents, we’ve rounded up some of the best Mother’s Day plants to gift this year for the (plant) mom in your life.
P.S. Since Mother’s Day is right around the corner, we suggest ordering your blooms soon to ensure a timely arrival on her doorstep.

The Cathy is one of UrbanStems’ most iconic plants thanks to the unique planter. The pot comes in three different colors reflective of different skin tones and the curling leaves of the xerographica air plant will only help to make this plant a centerpiece in any room.
The Sous Chef
For the mom who loves to cook, this set will be a welcomed addition to the kitchen. Though the rosemary plant is simply for decoration, the tomato-scented candle and tea towel will be useful additions to this chef-inspired bundle.
Another two-in-one, “The Gloss” includes purple African violets and lipstick-shaped chocolates (which, in our opinion, is better than an actual gloss).
