When we think of flowers, we often imagine the most popular and common ones: Roses and Lilies and Violets and Daisies. There are so many plants that can be turned into beautiful, colourful flowers. Flowers do not only have to be in the shape of a rose or lily; one has to know how to grow them!
So here is a list of 10 more different but equally beautiful flowers:
Bachelor’s Button (Centaurea cyanus):
We bet you’ve seen these blue flowers before! They’re usually found with lots of other varieties in many gardens and parks. The unique thing about this flower is that it can be usually found in two different colours: blue and white. You can order flower delivery in Mumbai to gift your loved ones.
Sunflower (Helianthus annuus):
Everyone knows the huge, bright yellow sunflowers! They’re great to look at because of their beauty, and they also provide lots of shade. The sunflower may well be one of the world’s most beautiful flowers. The familiar flower head, consisting of many individual petals bound into a central disc, can have a 6-inch diameter in some species, making it one of the largest flower heads found on any plant.
It is especially known for its bright yellow colour but can also be white or even maroon or dark brown shades. Most sunflowers are native to North America and Mexico but are cultivated worldwide for food and decoration. The tallest field-grown variety has been recorded at 43 feet tall! The sunflower’s beauty isn’t confined to its appearance alone; it also has many medicinal uses.
Chinese Lantern (Physalis alkekengi):
These flowers are very small but so pretty! Usually, they grow to only about 1-2 inches tall but still manage to be eye-catching! Their leaves are green with red veins running through them. The way the flower looks is like a small lantern–that’s why it’s called Chinese Lantern!
Calla Lily (Zantedeschia Rehmannii):
This flower is very similar to a Calla Lily, and it’s also a water lily, but it has a lot more of a yellow hue than the white Calla Lily. Zecharia Rehmannia is a tropical beauty that does well in temperate and warm locations, and the beauty of this plant is that it can be grown in most locations with low care.
The plant gets its name from the beauty of its succulent, leathery-like leaves; each leaf resembles lily pads with wrinkles on each side (thus the scientific name “Zestia,” which means wrinkled).
This particular plant species has many common names: Calla Lily, Zebra Plant, Zebra Cactus, Porkbush, or Fishbone Cactus. Regardless, what it lacks in appearance it makes up for in fragrance–the flowers have a wonderful smell. You can order flowers online at any time of the year.
A list of 7 beautiful flowers wouldn’t be complete without an orchid! There are many different types and colours of this flower: lavender, pink, purple. The colour and uniqueness of each kind make them all so appealing to look at! You can find these flowers in Noida. Flower Delivery in Noida is quite smooth and easily available.
Lantana (Lantana camara):
This is another flower that can come in various colours! These flowers remind me of daisies because they’re small, like daisies, and circular like daisies. The leaves are usually grey or green.
Amorphophallus titanum or Titan arum
Next is Amorphophallus titanum or Titan arum. This flower is part of the family Araceae, which includes many poisonous plants. It has a natural smell similar to rotten meat, attracting pollinators such as flies, beetles, and moths. The blossom can grow up to 3 meters in height. The plant blooms only once every several years – when it does so, it’s very easy for tourists to visit and see this amazing flower.
Another plant from the family Orchidaceae is the chocolate lily. It’s also known as a ‘chocolate flower’ because it’s brown looks like melted chocolate when it blooms. There are some cases in which the chocolate lily is bought as a houseplant. It’s native to Mexico and can be seen in subtropical forests.
Blue orchid or Habenaria Radiata
We have the Blue orchid or Habenaria Radiata. This particular type of orchid is native to North America. The plant itself is quite small, but its flowers can grow up to a size of 8 centimetres in diameter. This one used to be a lot bigger – about 20 centimetres across – but over time, it has been bred with other types of orchids that resulted in smaller sizes. You can find these flowers in Mumbai and Flower Delivery in Mumbai is quite affordable.
The next flower that we will talk about is called ‘Corpse flower’ or Amorphophallus. It may look cute, but it stinks because of its particular smell – something like rotting meat mixed with rancid butter. Not many people want this plant to grow near their houses.
So instead, experts take care of them at zoos or botanical gardens. When the corpse flower blooms, you only have one day to see it before it starts smelling worse than ever!
We all like to look at beautiful flowers. They remind us of the beauty of this world, and sometimes they even make us think about God.
