Image Details for Beautiful plants and flowers

1. Lily flower. The White Regal Lily also know as Lilium Regale flower is a trumpet flowered lily. It is among the easiest lilies to grow in most temperate climate gardens. Which makes this flower, one of the most popular in every garden of the world.

2. Blue rose flower. A blue rose is a flower of the genus Rosa (family Rosaceae), that presents blue-to-violet pigmentation instead of the more common red, white, or yellow. In 2004, researchers used genetic modification to create roses that contain the blue pigment delphinidin. Before that time, white roses were dyed blue.

3. White Easter Lily . Lilium longiflorum, often called the Easter lily, is a plant endemic to the Ryukyu Islands. In April-June the flowering season, the plant tends to grow from 20 inches to 3 feet, and produces pure white flowers on top of the stem.

4. Daylily flower. Daylily is the common name for plants of the genus Hemerocallis. This flower is highly diverse in colour and form, as a result of hybridization efforts of gardening enthusiasts and professional horticulturalists. As a photographer I could without a doubt say, that this red daylily is one of the most beautiful to the eye of the macro lens.

5. Cottongrass against blue sky. Cottongrass or cottonsedge is a genus of flowering plants in the family Cyperaceae, the sedge family. The seed heads are covered in a fluffy mass of cotton which are carried on the wind to aid dispersal.

6. Lilac tree. Syringa vulgaris (lilac or common lilac) is a species of flowering plant in the olive family Oleaceae, native to the Balkan Peninsula, where it grows on rocky hills. The lilac is a very popular ornamental plant in gardens and parks, because of its attractive, sweet-smelling flowers, which appear in early summer. In a sign of its complete naturalization in North America, it has been selected as the state flower of the state of New Hampshire. Lilac can also be found profusely in Canada.

7. Lily flower. Lily is the common English name for flowering plants of the Lilium genus. Lilies are a group of flowering plants which are important in culture and literature in much of the world. Most species are native to the temperate northern hemisphere, though their range extends into the northern subtropics. Lilies are tall perennials ranging in height from 2–6 ft (60–180 cm). They form naked or tunicless scaly underground bulbs which are their overwintering organs.

The seed heads are covered in a fluffy mass of cotton which are carried on the wind to aid dispersal. Gossypium is the cotton genus.

Their hummingbird pollinated flowers are tubular or trumpet-shaped, and may be blue, purple, red, yellow, or white, becoming pulpy berries. Iochromas are cultivated as flowering ornamentals and in cooler zones make useful patio shrubs for summer display or conservatory plants. Iochroma flowers attract hummingbirds (Americas only) and bees to gardens.

It originated in southern Africa, and is a tender perennial forming a ground cover, but often used in hanging baskets. Small dark green heart shaped leaves and small round five-petaled white flowers at the branch tips can be found year round.

19. Thistle flower plant. Thistle is the common name of a group of flowering plants characterised by leaves with sharp prickles on the margins, mostly in the family Asteraceae. Prickles often occur all over the plant – on surfaces such as those of the stem and flat parts of leaves. These are an adaptation that protects the plant against herbivorous animals, discouraging them from feeding on the plant. Typically, an involucre with a clasping shape of a cup or urn subtends each of a thistle's flo
