Will You Take the Challenge?
Are you a gardener? Do you enjoy flowers? How well do you know your summer flowers? This quiz uses pictures of ten flowers to help you identify them. There is a question about each flower.
Take a minute to look at the pictures below. Click on the thumbnail to enlarge the picture. They are in numerical order to correspond with the question about each. You can go back and look at the photos as you answer the questions.
Each of these flowers is growing in my certified habitat in Louisiana. Most attract wildlife like hummingbirds, butterflies, birds and other pollinators to the garden. We try to grow multipurpose plants that will add to the sustainable landscape.
I hope you enjoy this little quiz. Good Luck and may the force be with you.
