Updated on August 25, 2014

Yvonne is a Louisiana Master Gardener and a former president of the Folsom Native Plant Society. She gives talks about sustainable gardens.


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.

If You Didn't Do So Well...

You might want to visit some of the gardening hubs here on hubpages. I've written many that give you information about growing most of the flowers in the quiz. They are illustrated with many photographs of the flowering plants that grow here in south Louisiana. Most will grow well in other parts of the country, as well.

On the right is a list of links to a few of the hubs about flowers, as well as some other pages that might be helpful.

Below, you will find good books about planting for wildlife and about how to create your own backyard wildlife habitat.

      Thanks. I'm glad you enjoyed the quiz. Jimmie, you have given me an idea for another plant identification quiz, using the photographs in a different way... hmmm, the wheels are turning figuring out how to put it into action. ;)

      60%. I'm not too much of a flower person. Maybe a photo identification would have been easier? I'm not sure at all.
