There are thousands of flower species to choose from, for landscaping or just as a gift or floral occasion. Some are fragrant while others are showy and at times even odd-looking. The vast array of plant types can be confusing when deciding what will best suit your garden or home the best. Consider some flowers that are widely considered among the most beautiful
The tulip is the national flower of Iran and Turkey. Culturally, a gift of tulips communicates a sentiment of “perfect love.” Still, the color of tulips can change that meaning somewhat, so if you’re looking for the perfect bouquet, you’ll want to be mindful of what the various colors mean. Unsurprisingly, red tulips are most closely associated with romantic love. Yellow tulips used to mean unrequited love, but, over the years, they have come to more closely express happiness, sunshine, and warmth. The reasons behind it message and beautiful array of colours makes it one of the most beautiful flowers species
The Lotus symbolizes purity, beauty, majesty, grace, fertility, wealth, richness, knowledge and serenity. The Pink Lotus is the National Flower of India. It is known by a number of common names, including sacred lotus, Indian lotus and sacred water-lily. The Lotus is a sacred flower for Buddhists. The lotus isn’t really a species that can be received within a bouquet or display but it’s a beautiful flower that could set a peaceful scene to a garden pond.
One of the most popular garden plants, roses come in several forms, shapes and colors. Roses come in shades of yellow, pink, purple, white, cream, red and nearly black with several variations of shades in between. One of the rose species is the Peace rose which is the most famous and successful garden rose of all time. Over one hundred million plants had been sold, as of 1992. It is a Hybrid Tea rose with very large flowers and a light yellow to cream color. The rose is extremely popular for a variety of reasons but one is defiantly due to its beauty.
4) Phalaenopsis orchid
The Phalaenopsis orchid is a beautiful type of orchid. In fact, it is one of the most commonly recognized orchids because the Phalaenopsis is usually the most marketed orchid. This type of orchid is the most common because they are the easiest to grow and care for out of the orchid family. Orchids are beautiful, unique plants that bring peace to their surroundings. The simple appearance of an orchid fills a room with serenity, yet the complexity of each variation of an orchid adds individual style.
5) Passion Flower
Passionflower was used traditionally in the Americas and later in Europe as a “calming” herb for anxiety, insomnia, seizures, and hysteria. It is still used today to treat anxiety and insomnia. Passionflower is now grown throughout Europe. Each flower has 5 white petals and 5 sepals that vary in color from magenta to blue. The passionflower’s ripe fruit is an egg-shaped berry that may be yellow or purple. Some kinds of passion fruit are edible. This flower is extremely well known but until recently I only noticed how beautiful it can be.
If ever there was a flower that knew the meaning of variety, it is the Dahlia. While it’s colors are limited to the warm ranges of red, orange, yellow, pink and white, it’s flowers come in a dizzying array of shapes and sizes. Each variation of the dahlia petal is a beauty. Their petals can be spiky, wispy, round thin or a half dozen other variations. Even the color ranges from one solid color to a painted mixture of two or three colors.
7) Calla Lilies
Calla Lilies are not actually related to the true lily or the lily family. Instead, they’re members of the Araceae family, which includes Anthurium’s, caladiums and some philodendrons. The flower blooms from the top of a rather thick stem and sort of resembles trumpet shaped rolled paper, having a texture ranging from rather fleshy to wet autumn leaves. A grouping of calla lilies is a wonderful addition to any garden, since they are relatively easy to grow and are an absolute favourite as a cut flower inside the house.
8 ) Peonies
Peonies produce large, often fragrant flowers. Blooming in late spring and early summer, Peonies come in shades of red to white or yellow. Peonies are native to Asia, Southern Europe and Western North America. Since ancient times, Peonies have been regarded as the symbol of wealth, luck and happiness. Peonies always represent elegance and poise.
9) Lily “Stargazer”
One of the most stunning and perhaps most celebrated lily varieties is the stargazer lily. Known for its striking blooms and heavenly scent, the stargazer is a fantastic choice for a number of occasions. Delicate, bold, and fragrant all at once, stargazers can defiantly be announced as one of my top ten most beautiful flowers.
10)Birds Of Paradise (Strelitzia)
Strelitzia is a genus of five species of perennial plants, native to South Africa. A common name of the genus is bird of paradise flower, because of a supposed resemblance of its flowers to the bird of paradise. It’s a tropical flower which I feel is unique which makes it somewhat special and beautiful. The unusually beautiful shape and brilliant colors of Birds of Paradise have made these flowers not just a designer’s favorite, but also a popular symbol of paradise.
