Ready to dive right in?

1.  Eustoma

Eustomas are beautiful flowers that, at first glance, you might mistake for roses. Their bulb-like appearance is the one to blame for this mix-up, but here, the bulb shape is less pronounced than that of roses.

Eustoma flowers are native to the southern regions of the United States, Mexico, and the northern parts of South America. You can mainly find them in grasslands and prairies.

One of the coolest things about these flowers is that they come in many eye-catching colors that easily make them the stars of any bouquet. These little fellows are found with purple, pink, blue, and white petals.

You might know Eustoma flowers by other, more common names, including:

  • Lisianthus
  • Prairie gentian

2.  English Daisy

Who doesn’t get a little excited at the chance to make a crown of daisies? With their delicate white petals, vibrant yellow centers, and elegant green stems, it can be hard to resist including English daisies in every flower arrangement possible!

English daisies bloom in different regions of the world. So, you’ll find them peppering the meadows of parts of Asia, the Americas, Australia, and their native continent Europe.

Despite having the ability to grow in various climates, English daisies stay true to their name. They simply prefer the cold weather of England, where you can come across them more often than anywhere else.

English daisies have other names as well, such as:

  • Bellis perennis (scientific name)
  • Common daisies
  • Lawn daisies

4.  Emilia

After taking one look at Emilia flowers with their various bright colors and seemingly upbeat character, I now know that Emilia Clarke was justly named!

Emilias can bring a lot of joy into your household with their dandelion-like, bunched petals and long stems. They’re also available in red, yellow, orange, pink, and purple, easily catching the attention of any guest who steps into your living room.

Even though Emilias are widespread all over the globe, they exist in more numbers in tropical regions. Their homelands are the warmer areas of India, China, and other Asian countries.

Besides its lovely name, the Emilia flower is known by:

  • Tassel flower

5.  Everlasting Daisy

Everlasting daisies are definitely worth your attention because they look just a little bit like daisies but with more breathtaking colors. These Australia-native flowers have large clusters of pink, purple, orange, or red petals, making them perfect for fresh bouquets.

Better still, everlasting daisies are great candidates if you’re all about drying flowers because they keep their shape and color after the drying process. Talk about being almost immortal!

Because of their immense hardiness and endurance of drought, everlasting daisies are effortless to grow and take care of. Just keep in mind that they don’t like too much heat, so you should consider planting them in a shaded part of your garden.

Wondering what other names everlasting daisies have? There you go:

  • Xerochrysum bracteatum (scientific name)

  • Strawflower

6.  Erigeron

Erigerons resemble daisies, but if you look closer at them, you’ll discover that they have a simply incomparable appearance. Where the petals of daisies are white, those that belong to Erigerons can be red, purple, pink, or white.


These lovely flowers should also be a wonderful addition to the vase that you have on your dining table or windowsill. Even better, Erigeron blooms aren’t all that hard to grow because this flower is one of the hardiest you can possibly find. Win-win!

Erigeron flowers are widespread across the world, but they’re more abundantly found in Europe, North America, and Asia. They’re also known as:

7.  Echinacea

You’ve probably heard of the numerous medicinal benefits of Echinaceas, but that’s not the only thing that makes these pretty ladies special. Echinaceas come in a unique shape that you can’t easily forget; they have inverted cone-like centers surrounded by downward-facing petals.

It’s almost as if these flowers are craning their necks to look at the sky!

Echinaceas are native to North America, and, more often than not, they appear with cute purple petals. However, sometimes the petals are pink or pale purple. As for the centers, they’re usually dark brown that leans toward red.

Other names for this fascinating flower include:

8.  English Bluebell

The English bluebell is exactly what comes to mind when you hear its name. This vividly colored flower is shaped like a bell that faces downward, and it comes in a beautiful shade of blue that can bring feelings of peace to your home.
