SAN DIEGO, April 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Deciding what to get moms on Mother's Day – whether it's for your mother, grandmother or mother-in-law – can be challenging.  Whereas a girlfriend or significant other might be more forthcoming with hints regarding what they would like for Valentine's Day or Christmas, this may be less true for mothers on Mother's Day.  One gift that is sure to please is flowers, and ProFlowers' floral experts have come up with a list of top five Mother's Day flower recommendations.

ProFlowers' Vice President of Merchandising, Greg Smith recommends, "There are a wide range of floral options for mothers, so it's best to first identify what kind of arrangement would most please your mom – something that is whimsical or something that is classic?  This shows your mom that you put a lot of thought into the gift, and will help you select the perfect floral arrangement for her."

Here is the list of ProFlowers' top five recommendations for Mother's Day flowers:

The Classic:  Classics such as assorted roses and tulips never fail to astound and have proven to be top sellers year after year.  Surprise your mother with assorted roses or tulips and you can't go wrong.

The Show Stopper:  Sure to impress moms is ProFlowers' 100 Blooms for Mom.  This bouquet of Peruvian lilies adds vibrant color to any room.

The Practical:  If you are looking for something that is practical, a flowering plant is perfect – with proper care it can last a long time both indoors and outdoors.  Not only are flowering plants beautiful but some, such as the gardenia plant, emit a lovely fragrance.

The Whimsical:  ProFlowers' All the Frills bouquet is sure to delight.  The unexpected combination of multi-hued pink roses and pink alstroemeria, accented with bright green Fuji mums, adds a touch of whimsy.

The Elegant:  The Beauty and Grace bouquet from ProFlowers will fill moms' homes with the sweet fragrance of lilies and freesia accented by tulips, snapdragons and curly willow branches.

Flowers never fail to bring joy to moms on Mother's Day.  Make sure your flowers are memorable by selecting the perfect arrangement for her.
