If a traditional flower bouquet and Hallmark card just won’t cut it this year for Mother’s Day, check out these blooming green alternatives. From mint leaves to Bonsai, you can design your own mix just for your mom. And, you can bet she’ll be happy, especially when this non-traditional “bouquet” lasts longer than just three to five days.

Fleur: You can’t help but smell the garden roses, jasmine, peonies and wax flowers (yes, these are real) inside Logan Square’s vibrant Fleur. If you’re looking for a “traditional” bouquet, without the traditional flowers (the hues of Ranunculus will get your attention), this is your place. Among the fragrant flowers, you’ll also find locally-made jewelry, neighborhood monogrammed stationary, and an entire table devoted to what else? Mother’s Day cards.
