“Flow­ers are the most divine cre­ation of nature … after women” — Chris­t­ian Dior. The bio­log­i­cal func­tion of a flower most often is to cre­ate a mech­a­nism for plant repro­duc­tion. For gen­er­a­tions, almost every civ­i­liza­tion in the world has idol­ized flow­ers as arti­facts of beau­ty and fra­grance. Each flower has its own emo­tion­al mean­ing and sym­bol­ism. We present you the 10 most beau­ti­ful flow­ers in the world.

10. Lily “Stargazer”

Ori­en­tal lily (botan­i­cal name Lil­i­um Stargaz­er) gets its name from its large star-shaped flow­ers. It is also one of the world’s most pleas­ant-smelling flow­ers, com­mon­ly used to dec­o­rate lux­u­ri­ous inte­ri­ors. Its petals are bright pink with tex­tured freck­les. Despite their beau­ty, stargaz­ers are inher­ent­ly tox­ic plants and should not be kept around pets.


9. Begonia

Bego­nias are very com­mon among enthu­si­as­tic gar­den­ers, attract­ing atten­tion with bright flow­ers with an excep­tion­al calm pat­tern.

There are approx­i­mate­ly 400 vari­eties, and the most com­mon is Pas­si­flo­ra edulis, the only flower that can devel­op into pas­sion fruit.
