Papaver Orientale

Horticulture writer Teri Dunn Chace and photographer Robert Llewellyn's book "Seeing Flowers" is a combination of glossy coffee table book and a fascinating peek into the secret life of flowers.

Galanthus Ikariae

This rare flower, a perennials bulb, originates on a number of Greece's Aegean islands and is commonly called the snowdrop. The six petal-like tepals give this flower away as an amaryllis relation.

Daucus Carota

A member of the carrot family, Queen Anne's lace has a long and colorful history. The flower, which typically boast a red or purple flower at its center, supposedly got its name when the queen pricked her finger while making lace. The flower represents a drop of her blood.

Passiflora Caerulea

In addition to being a spectacular, exotic beauty, passionflower has myriad positives: a lovely fragrance, an ability to attract butterflies and even edible flowers.

Allium

This dramatic 'Purple Sensation' allium boasts baseball-size flowerheads and is in the lily family.

Queen Anne's Lace

When the familiar wildflower Queen Anne's lace is pollinated, the flowerhead curls inward and seeds begin to ripen.

Dahlia

One of the stars of the garden, dahlias like this waterlily type, are favorites among flower enthusiasts.

Lavandula Stoechas

French lavender differs in appearance from other lavenders with its extra petals emerging from the top of the flower.

Trifolium Repens

Though often used as a pasture crop, white clover is a lovely mat-forming perennial (though considered a weed by many when it pops up in lawns) that blooms in late spring. As most of us remember from childhood, white clover is particularly appealing to bees.
