About This Quiz

Flowers evolved over millions of years to appeal to all sorts of creatures by looking beautiful and smelling great, and while most of their signals are intended to delight bees, they also bring a great deal of joy to humans. Flowers symbolize everything from love to healing to friendship to mourning, and almost no major life event is complete without them. On a day-to-day basis, we use them to decorate our gardens and inside our homes, and we appreciate them where we find them in the wild. A world without flowers would be a dark one indeed (albeit one with less sneezing).

Like people, flowers are tremendously diverse in their preferences and the situations in which they can flourish. Some stand tall and demand attention in the sunlight, while others prefer a quieter life in the shade. Some will literally devour their foes, and others give sweet nectar to everyone they meet. Some will sting, but only at certain times. All are beautiful in their own way. This means that no matter whether you're free-spirited or retiring, anxious or calm, aggressive or gentle, there is a flower out there that represents you, and that's the source of your flower name. Take this quiz to find out what it is!
