White Wedding® Hydrangea from Southern Living® Plant Collection
A bouquet from the store comes and goes, but this gorgeous flower-filled hydrangea produces beautiful blooms in Mom’s garden month after month. White Wedding® Hydrangea from Southern Living® Plant Collection produces spectacular masses of pillow-like white blooms from midsummer to fall with remarkably easy care. Cold-hardy (USDA Zones 4-8) and compact, its strong stems defeat drooping to support White Wedding’s large white conical blooms, which also make fabulous cut flowers.

Support Baby Pollinators
If you love pollinators as much as us, you’ll know they love native plants. But we don’t love the stress of trying to find the right plants for the right region. Garden for Wildlife, from the National Wildlife Federation, has curated collections of keystone native plants that support the most species of bees, birds, and butterflies – and all selected by region. These beautiful blooms are proven to double wildlife in just one season and add variety, color, and texture. Once they arrive, grab a shovel and help mom plant with a purpose.
Autumn Fire® from Encore® Azalea
Trendy magenta blooms will light a fire in Mom’s heart this spring with Autumn Fire® Encore® Azalea. Autumn Fire produces season after season of spectacular semi-double crimson flowers, blooming spring through fall. And the color show doesn’t stop when the temperatures drop: Autumn Fire’s foliage deepens to a jewel-like purple bronze in winter in a stunning display. With a petite size averaging 2.5’ high, Autumn Fire is perfect for containers or mass plantings, and thrives in USDA Zone 6A and above in settings with 4 to 6 hours of direct sun.
Jackson & Perkins Bella’roma Hybrid Tea Rose
Stop and smell the roses with this splendid Jackson & Perkins’ hybrid tea rose. Just as beautiful as its name suggests, Bella’roma is perfect for moms who love perfume. The high-centered blooms, containing up to 30 warm-yellow petals, with edges in blushing rich pink, emit a powerful traditional rose scent.

Any gardener—beginner or seasoned pro—will love it, but it's also a fantastic gift for the whole family, perfect for a family project. It's a tremendous tool for teaching children how things grow, helping them appreciate the time and care it takes to sprout seedlings they planted themselves. And think of the experiments you can do.
