Botany Time! Can You Name These Flowers?


How much do you know about Botany? Flowers add a splash of color and aroma to any garden or home. Even flowers that do not grow natively in a particular location can bloom in a home garden. That is if a gardener takes care of them properly.

There are thousands of varieties of flowers, and each signifies a different thing.

You might give roses to your significant other to convey your love, or peonies to a newly engaged couple to wish them a happy marriage.

Flowers serve a variety of medicinal purposes as well. Many are steeped in teas to add flavor and aroma.

However, many flowers, like the Oriental Poppy, are also poisonous. You must pay extra special attention to them! Pay additional attention to your pets as well as poisonous flowers.

You may have seen or heard of all of the following flowers below, but how much do you know about them? Take this quiz to test your knowledge of flower botany!

Did you know?

Tulips are very culturally significant for the Dutch?

In fact, they were considered to be worth more than gold in the Netherlands in the seventeenth century. During this timeframe, many tulip fields were afflicted with an infection known as Tulip Mania, which caused unique variations in the flowers that caused them to be even more valuable. These tulips were colloquially known as "broken" tulips, but their brokenness made them more beautiful. Tulips were the subjects of many famous Dutch paintings during the Dutch Golden Age, and have been strongly linked to the Netherlands ever since. Today, the Netherlands remains among the top tulip producers worldwide.
