Yes, Amazon's really selling fresh flowers for Mother's Day — and they ship free with Prime!

Yep, you can get fresh flowers at Amazon! (Photo: Amazon)

Every once in a while, you come across something at Amazon that'll totally blow your mind. Case in point: We just discovered that the online retail giant actually sells fresh flowers. That means you can order a gorgeous bouquet for Mother's Day right from your Amazon account while stocking up on other must-haves like toilet paper and new sandals — and it ships free (and arrives on time) with Prime! The shipping is a huge factor to consider: Many online floral retailers will charge an arm and a leg for delivery fees. There's a massive range of pretty petals to choose from and, because this is Amazon we're talking about, the prices are much lower than what you'll find at online or local floral shops. Take a moment to let that sink in...and then start adding these stunning fresh flowers to your cart.

This bouquet is bold-yet-simple and features purple and white orchids in a clear vase. Mom will get five purple and five white Dendrobium orchids shipped in bud form for maximum vase life.

Shared one happy customer: "So impressed with the delivery, and especially the packing! Kept the flowers so fresh! Love it!"

This bestseller is a mere fraction of what you'd pay elsewhere. It features sunflowers, along with solidago, alstroemeria, novelty poms and more for a bright, cheery vibe. The bouquet — which is huge, by the way — comes in a cute box and includes a clear vase.

Several shoppers swear the blooms have an impressive shelf life. "These flowers are the best I have ever ordered online!" said one. "I’ve ordered two different bouquets in the last couple months and both were fresh and lasted for literally weeks. They have me sold as a customer."

Lilies have a uniquely sweet scent people love — and this bouquet is packed with them. Mom will get a mix of white lilies and pink roses for a feminine feel. The flowers ship in bud form and will open in two to three days, helping them to travel better.

"Ordered these with crossed fingers. Never thought they’d be nicer than anything I could order via a florist," said a happy customer. "The flowers lasted over two weeks! Will definitely use this method of fresh flower delivery again."

Got a mom who loves pink? This bouquet is packed with a variety of pink flowers, including roses and carnations, artfully arranged for a lush look. The flowers ship with a clear, rounded vase that mom can reuse whenever the need strikes.

"My mother loved the flowers. She said they were well-wrapped and in perfect shape," said a five-star fan. "When she trimmed the stems, they fit perfectly in the vase."

If Mom's a rose fan, consider this perky bouquet. It features hot pink roses mixed with Alstroemeria for a fun, peppy feel. The flowers arrive in a floral-inspired box and come with their own clear glass vase your mom can use again down the road.

One satisfied shopper raved that the bouquet is "still going strong" after 14 days. "I ordered this rose and alstroemeria bouquet as a gift, to be delivered. The box sat on the doorstep on a winter's day for several hours, before they were picked up after work," they wrote. "The ends were snipped off, and the flowers were put in water. They looked great on day one. Every two days, the water was changed and ends were snipped off again. A week later, they looked as great as the day they arrived. Two weeks later, and they still look fantastic!"

If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)
