Fun Facts about Flowers by Species
Although there are over 250,000 species of flowering plants in the world, most everyone has singled out one or two to call favorite. Below are some facts about a few of the world's most popular flowers.

 

Roses

  • Roses are valued for their romantic symbolism but their blooms are also edible and have the flavors of green apples and strawberries.
  • There are over 15,000 species of roses cultivated across the world.
  • Barbara Streisand, Whoopi Goldberg, and Rosie O'Donnell each have a rose named for them.
  • The rose family also includes pears, apples, cherries, plums, peaches, apricots, and almonds.

Tulips

  • Tulips have a brief lifespan of only three to seven days.
  • Amazingly, Tulips can continue to grow as much as an inch per day after being cut.
  • Symbolism such as imagination, dreaminess, and a declaration of love is a big part of the allure of Tulips.
