The Colors of the Rainbow, as seen in a variety of flowers.

There is truly a variety of colors and shades of flowers out there. There is just about every color imaginable. This gallery of flower photos is dedicated to sharing some of the color spectrum of the rainbow through flowers. I love everything about a rainbow and I love flowers. It seemed a perfect combination.

All the colors of the rainbow, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple are represented below in the flower photos. I go in order from red to purple. I also put in a white flower photo at the end, just for good measure. White plays a role in color schemes and flower gardens for sure.

Flower Photos in a Rainbow of Colors

Photo 1 - This bright red flower is pretty bold, and I believe it is a kind of penstemon flower. Little flowers with bold color that can make a statement in the garden.

Photo 2 - This is more of a pink flower, and its included near the red on purpose. It is called stonecrop sedum plant. I have this plant in my butterfly garden and it comes back faithfully year after year.

Photo 3 - I have seen a lot of different peach or apricot colored flowers before This bright orange is very bold and beautiful in a flower, and was my choice to be included to represent orange here. Orange coreopsis or orange marigolds would be good as well.

Photo 4 - This butterfly bush is a golden yellow color and is perfect to bring in the yellows at this part of the list. The bee is rather busy there as well.

Photo 5 - A lighter yellow dahlia in yellow is a good choice for the next spot.

Photo 6 - Green and red zinnias shown here. This variety of green zinnia is called "green with envy" and I have planted the seeds in my garden before. They are a light green, but definitely green.

Photo 7 - This photo is of some blue pansies, with a moth or skipper admirer visiting them. There aren't many "true blue" flowers out there, but it seems this last year I have been more and more. I think these are some of the bluer flowers I have captured with my camera.

Photo 8 - Blue/periwinkle/purple asters bring in the purple part of the rainbow now. A lovely little flower, somewhat simple but making a great impact.

Photo 9 - A deeper purple flower here with a small amount of white on it. The bee is very attracted to it for sure. I love these flowers, they feel soft when you touch them, almost as soft as they look.

Photo 10 - These unique white flowers caught my eye. This is a good photo to click on to see the larger version because there is more detail than meets the eye initially. At least that was true for me.

Georgia O'Keefe is an artist, a wonderful painter of flowers in large scale. I absolutely love her work, as you could have probably guessed. Here is a quote from her I thought interesting.

"Whether the flower or the color is the focus I do not know. I do know the flower is painted large to convey my experience with the flower -- and what is my experience if it is not the color?"
