Most popular flowers for Mom


By Crandall Sims

COLUMBIA, S.C. (WOLO) -- It's that day to honor the most important woman in your life, you Mom. Many people just to do so by sending flowers and florists say there's a reason for that.

"I think it's in our DNA," says Roger Patton, Part Owner of Blossom Shop on Devine Street.

Patton says this time of year is always busy.

"It's our 2nd busiest holiday, easily," says Patton.

This year is no exception.

"Sales are up, they're ordering earlier this year, but Mother's Day they traditionally do order early because the Mothers can get them on Thursday or Friday and enjoy them the whole Mother's Day weekend," says Patton.

Some even have a specific flower picked out.

"Sometimes they've picked a certain flower for their Mother, because the Mother had that specific flower in her wedding bouquet," says Patton.

It's their way of putting that special unique touch on a gift that's very common.

"A lot of roses by the dozen, 2 dozen, in fact we even have a few 3 dozens going," says Patton

But Moms aren't the only ones getting flowers, Grandmothers are too.

But what's popular?

"Mix spring or plants a lot of parents or grandparents have retired, they like to pittle in the yard so they'll send blooming plants that can be out in the yard and will come back year after year," says Patton.

No matter what kind of flower you send, Patton says it's sure to please.

"Its just a gift that brings a smile, I mean you can't say no to flowers," says Patton.

Mother's Day is this Sunday, May 13, that means you have just 3 days left to order those flowers.
