I think we can all agree that Mums are amazing! For those of us who are lucky enough to be able to say thank you for everything they do (not to mention being the reason we exist), it is a great opportunity to give them a present that conveys that. 

Obviously, in The Little Botanical team, we are slightly biased, but we think we have some beautiful plants that are the perfect Mother’s Day present. There are still a couple of weeks to go until Mother’s Day, 31st March in case you needed to check, so don’t panic, you still have some time to pick the perfect gift for your Mum!

1. Lilacina

One of the newest additions to our collection, the Lilacina Succulent is just gorgeous. It has lilac/grey leaves that have just a touch of pink around their edges. Don’t be worried if your Mum isn’t known for her green fingers. The Lilacina doesn’t need a lot of care, in fact, it just needs a little water every month to keep it looking fresh.

As with all of our plants, the ceramic pot is included, so you don’t need to worry about buying a pot that then doesn’t fit!  This little beauty, in it’s stylish on-trend soft pink and copper dipped pot, is already proving to be an absolute must-have for all plant lovers.

Why not create a cute little succulent plant gang with the Hoya Kerrii single heart or Crassula.  

2. Hoya Kerrii (Double Heart)

Our lovely Hoya Kerrii double heart succulent is a great choice for any Mother given the metaphor with the larger and smaller heart together. Closely nestled in a little bed of moss, the message that you love your Mum is loud and clear with this one! 

In addition, they come in our signature black and metallic gold dipped pot and are easy to look after. They only need a little drink every month.

We think they look great with the pretty Pilea Peperomioides Houseplant or a spikier succulent like our little Sansevieria Punk. This guy lives in our new grey and copper ceramic pot.

3. Blue & Pink Magical Hydrangea

Our Magical Hydrangeas are available in two colours, pretty pink and baby blue. Personally, the blue is our favourite! These plants are magical and are particularly long-lasting! Their magic power is definitely attributed to the colour change. It will slowly change colour during the season and can last up to 150 days. These plants really are a gift that just keeps giving.

The on-trend grey ceramic pot and plant will come in separate boxes, but all you need to do is pop the plant into the ceramic pot. Simple!  The ceramic contrasts beautifully with the flowers.  It really is a stunning gift.

The blue and pink Hydrangea look great as a pair, or add a dainty little succulent like our little Aloe Succulent.

4. Royal White Orchid

Truly the King of Orchids, our Royal White Orchid is a real showstopper. They have beautiful flowers cascading down the length of the plant. Why give a bouquet of flowers that might last a week, when this will keep your Mum smiling for months! These long-lasting orchids bloom for several months. We ensure that the orchid you receive will arrive with at least three open flowers. The buds will open up at a rate of approximately 1 a week. These orchids only need infrequent watering and a spritz to keep the moss fresh approximately once a fortnight.

Why not add another orchid to the create a perfect floral bundle with the Mini Mauve Orchid or add a lush, green Boston Fern for some variation.

5. Flowering Begonia (Light and Dark pink)

Our bright blooming Begonias are the perfect gift for mum.  They arrive with our Little Botanical grey and silver dipped ceramic and will bloom for weeks and weeks.

These flowering houseplants like a light spot and need watering weekly. British grown, we grow and nurture our Begonias in our nursery in West Sussex. Therefore, they haven’t travelled too far ensuring they are lush and fresh.  We think a flowering begonia is a great value option and above all, will brighten up any space. Moreover, it certainly lasts longer than a bouquet of flowers too!

Pair with our Mini Pink Kalanchoe or out Medium Aloe Vera to create a modern flowering plant gang perfect for mum.
