Flowers From A To Z – A Sampling of Remarkable Diversity

The innumerable flowers of this beautiful world fill a spectrum of colors, sizes, shapes, bloom times, and habitats. With careful design, a single garden could contain plants that, collectively, provide nonstop blooms from spring through fall, and perhaps even through winter, in every possible hue. Imagine what a sight that would be, from the tiny blossoms of creeping groundcover to stunning flowering vines twisting above your head — a paradise of color and fragrance.

With such remarkable diversity, it’s hardly surprising that plants have colorful names to match, with names of flowers from A to Z and from elegant to humorous. Consider the lovely jessamine or aptly named Dutchman’s breeches.

Whether you’re researching flowers, looking for creative names, or browsing for inspiration, an alphabetical list of flowering plants can come in handy.

We’ve created a separate list for each letter of the alphabet (some of the sparser letters may be combined), with all of them listed here for easy reference. They mostly contain herbaceous annuals and perennials, with a few shrubs or vines here and there.

Though this may not be a comprehensive list, it includes photos, physical descriptions, and growing requirements for each plant to help you choose the best new additions for your garden.
