Mother’s Day is almost here! After the year they’ve had, moms deserve a day (but really more) of all-out pampering now more than ever. Breck’s, a mail order flower and gardening company, conducted a study looking at which flowers were searched for most leading up to Mother’s Day, as well as surveyed 700 moms across America to find out what they wanted most this Mother’s Day.

They found that the most popular Mother’s Day flowers were roses, as they were the most searched for in 18 states. The second most popular were gardenias, cyclamen and poppies. Some unique flower choices were also found to be crocuses (for Hawaii and Kansas) and tulips (for Michigan and Indiana).
