If their mother is no longer alive they wear white carnations.
- Another reason carnation flowers are commonly gifted to mothers on this special day is because these are not very expensive. No matter what season, these flowers are easily available in the market and cost lesser than most flowers.
- Another good thing about these mothers day flowers Australia is that these can last for 2 weeks unlike other flowers. Most of the flowers last from 1 week to 10 days and they require a lot of care and attention.

In order to extend their life you just need to change the water after a day or two, provide them with flower food and trim their stems. It is advised to keep these flowers away from direct sunlight, air conditioners and heaters.
