Sure, it will be just fine. But keep in mind that you'll need to be quite close to the flowers. You won't have a lot of working distance. This should work just fine for flowers but if you're looking for insects or really closeup work then this solution won't be optimal. You generally need more working distance for those subjects and that means a longer macro lens.

I don't have any real flowers and I don't have the Canon 250D filter but I do have the AFS 35mm f1.8 and a Nikon #2 close up filter.
Here's the range. The 1st photo has the end of the filter 14" from the tip of the flower. The 2nd photo has the filter 5" from the tip of the flower. That's a pretty good range.
The flower is slightly less than 4" wide from the longest petal tip to tip.
By the way you can buy the #0, #1 and #2 Nikon close up filters from KEH for $4 each. Plus you can stack them. Just a thought if you want to experiment. They seem to work very well on that lens.
edit. The camera I used is the D3200 and tripod mounted. The closest photo was shot at f11 and the furthest at f5.6.
edit #2 Here's a photo combining the #1 and #2 filters. The distance from filter to flower is 3 1/2".
The Canon 250D is +4.0 diopters. The Nikon #1 is +1.5 diopters and the #2 is +3.0 diopters.
