101+ Flower Names In Alphabetical Order

Flowering plants produce flowers. The flower is part of the plant’s reproductive system. Usually, flowers are remarkably colorful (red, blue, green, purple, pink, orange, yellow, etc.) and have a sweet scent. The sweet scent allows the flower to be attractive to different types of animals, which then unknowingly help transfer pollen to other plants.

There are several different types of flowers, and not only are they attractive to animals, but humans have taken a liking to them as well. Flowers can be used to beautify a garden, as a gift for a loved one, or as medicine and food. There are even flower delivery services like ProFlowers and 1-800-Flowers that specialize in selling fresh flowers online.

Flower names are also popular names for children as well. For example, Rose, Violet, Daisy, Hyacinth are all different names for flowers that humans also use. There are wedding flowers that are usually white but can be of any color depending on the bride’s taste. There are even edible flowers. For example, you can have candied daisy, roses, or even violet.
