Roses make the perfect gift for mom thanks to their elegance, beauty, and the season long bloom power. We’ve put together the ultimate guide to Mother’s Day shopping so you can easily pick the perfect rose for the perfect mom.

Let’s jump right in!

Roses Perfect for Containers

Planting a rose in a decorative pot can be a fun way to add beauty to multiple areas of your space. Plant a more compact variety, like Little Mischief, in a pot with some annuals to create a stunning entry way display for the summer. Use a rose like Oscar Peterson or Screaming Neon Red to add vibrancy and color to your patio, deck or even by your pool!

Plus, these roses will last for multiple seasons in their container if properly cared for. Check out our container planting guide to learn even more about caring for roses in decorative pots. 

Roses Perfect for Foundation Planting

Add to your mom’s garden curb appeal with a color rose that doesn’t require tons of work. Gifting a rose like Paint the Town, Kashmir or Mystic Fairy is a great way to boost the beauty of a garden without adding extra hours tending to roses.

Roses Perfect for Adding Fragrance

If you’re specifically looking for a rose that will bring a beautiful scent to the garden, Sweet Fragrance and High Voltage are the way to go. These two roses are fantastic additions to any space with their gorgeous and unique color paired with the classic scent of roses.

Roses Perfect for Mass Planting

Sunrise Sunset is the perfect rose for covering lots of ground with gorgeous blooms. With beautiful pink blooms and excellent performance in cool and warm climates, gardeners all over the country have fallen in love with Sunrise Sunset. Use it as a mass planting option when you’re looking to fill out the landscape.

Roses Perfect for Hedges

If your mom is hoping to create privacy or soften a fence line in her landscape, try gifting a larger rose like All the Rage or High Voltage. Both of these roses add a pop or beautiful color and mix well with other shrubs, perennials, and annuals in the garden. 

Roses Perfect for a Colorful Garden

Colorful summer gardens that make the neighbors stop and stare is the goal of every gardener.
