I love all kinds of flowers, but I'd have to say daffodils are my favorite. They are so hardy and cheery, and when they bloom, you know that spring is here. They also multilply easily, and last forever. I probably have 1000 of them all over the property, and intend to dig and divide some more this fall.

Orchids-all kinds. Got to see them at the National Botanical Gardens-flowers from all over the world-some orchids are even endangered.

I like calla lilies but nothing smells better than lilacs. white lilies are lovely too. I recently bought a flower that looks almost like a firework, though I don't know what it's called. I'll have to post a picture...

I absolutely adore just about all flowers but my favorite is the Carnation for looks and scent. Sweet Williams are a pretty close second since they are very similar in shape and have the lovely tint around the edges. I also love Gardenias for scent which were always my mother's favorite and never understood why until I grew up lol. They just didn't seem thrilling as a kid. For looks, I also love the Dahlia and Lotus Blossom. But really, any and all flowers will please me just fine:)

That would be my wife. She is my favorite Flower (my last name is Flowers )

But if you are talking the plant kind of flower, it would have to be a toss-up between a wild Iris, or something in the Crocus family.
