Tulips Are Here! What Each Color Means for Mom

Updated May 7, 2018

Tulips, one of the first flowers to bloom in spring, represent rebirth and a deep love — perfect for celebrating Mother’s Day. There is a long-standing language of flowers said to have been finely tuned in the Victorian era when flowers were used to express feelings which otherwise could not be spoken. One bouquet can tell a love story, while the other can be one of friendship or appreciation.
