It took a long time for me to appreciate flowers. Cut flowers, I always thought why enjoy something I bought to die in a jar? Living flowers, I always thought why plant something you can't eat? I've grown to enjoy flowers more in the last few years. Most of my favorites are still flowers that I encounter growing, not cut flowers. Ones you can eat still get bonus points.

1. Wisteria
2. Magnolia
3. Crepe Myrtle
4. Passionflower
5. Xenia (Zinnia, apparently. I always assumed the name came from the Greek word for hospitality, like Xenia, Ohio, but apparently they're just named after a dude named Zinn. Disappointing.)
6. Morning Glory
7. Indian Paintbrush
8. Indian Blanket
9. Apple Blossom
10. Poppy
11. Chrysanthemum
12. Redbud
13. Squash Blossom
14. Bluebonnet
15. Daffodil
16. Iris
17. Mimosa

Indian paintbrush!! How could I forget it? There's even a framed dried one hanging in my room.
