Editor's note -- In a provocative piece of investigative journalism, The Daily Beast has learned from the Society of American Florists that Mother's Day accounts for 25 percent of all holiday flower sales.

The Daily Beast then ranked floral data obtained through the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture to determine that the Gerbera Daisy, at 114 millions stems sold annually, is America's top-selling flower!

Editor's note -- The third most popular flower in America is the tulip. The Editor's Mom is receiving a large bouquet of white ones tinged with pink and wrapped in a pink bow, according to Mike at Marianne's Floral Garden.  

Happy Mother's Day!!
