About This Quiz

Flowers are one of the things that we humans cannot explain. Meaning, they were here long before us and some of them will be, here long after we're gone. While humans have stepped up and created a few of their own, there's nothing manmade about the way these plants makes us feel. From conveying love with the popular rose to happiness with a gigantic sunflower, these plants are one of the best gifts we have on this planet. But how well do you know them? Are you well-versed enough to tell us their names if we showed you pictures?

Sure, it's easy to name a rose, carnation, and lily, but what about the more difficult flowers like the aster, the winter jasmine, and the protea. Some unappetizingly-named flowers like the spiderwort, witch hazel, and monkshood may not even be on your radar. But they are in this quiz. It's up to you to use our questions, hints, and your knowledge of these brightly-colored plants to try to ace this quiz.
