Best Plants To Give Mom For Mother’s Day

Over the years I’ve given my mom plenty of plants. But I can honestly say that I don’t remember ever giving her a bouquet of flowers. Unless you want to count the time when I was 3 or 4 and I collected the most beautiful bunch of crimson red leaves to give to her. Those leaves ended up being poison ivy and my mom is highly allergic. Cut flowers don’t last but a week or so. Plants, even hanging baskets, will last for years. All as a beautiful reminder of when they were given.
