They are also popular as Mother Day Flowers because like mother’s love the carnations also lasts the longest among all flowers. Carnations come in variety of colors such as pink, red, white, green, purple and yellow. They symbolize love, fascination and admiration. Send carnations to your mother and grandmother on Mother’s Day and express succinctly how much they mean to you. You can also send carnations to your beloved and express hope that your relationship has the same longevity and resilience as that of the carnations.
