“Flowers are the most divine creations after women” – Christian Dior.
A flower’s biological function is usually to create a mechanism of plant reproduction.
For several generations, almost every civilization in the world has idolized flowers as artifacts of beauty and fragrance.
Every flower stands for distinct emotional meanings and symbolism connected with them, while some are too uncommonly fascinating.
If you are considering upgrading your hanging baskets to something exotic, here are the top 10 most beautiful flowers in the world:
10. Stargazer Lily
The Oriental lily (botanical name Lilium Stargazer), also regarded as the ‘Stargazer lily’ because of its big star-shaped blooms.
This is also among the best-smelling flowers in the world, usually used to decorate luxurious interiors.
The beauty of the flower can be best described as petals decoratively stained in hot pink with textured freckles.
Even if they are lovely, stargazers are toxic plants by nature and should be avoided around pets.
No other exotic flower evokes a refreshing tropical feeling like frangipani (Plumeria).
Frangipani is a spectacular flower with a strong fragrance that decorates any backyard lawn or park in full bloom.
It is a midsized bush that can be cultivated in tropical and subtropical environments.
Plumerias are available in all shades: pure white to dark red, pale pink to butter lemon, and lively colors like yellows, golds, oranges, peaches, mango, lilac, blood-red, etc. Most Frangipanis petals come in striped bicolor and tricolor petals.
And now, varieties with different leaf shades are developed (hybridized).
The shapes of petals also vary from thick, scalloped overlapping to thin, elongated petals.
There are many Anemone species, among them, we can term a Mediterranean-born species which belongs to the family, as the prettiest flowers bloom.

There are many varieties of this best looking flower which belongs to the genus Dahlia, originally from Central America.
Dahlias blossom every year, and about 42 species exist with at least twenty thousand sub-varieties.
Once Dahlias were both gathered and harvested as food by indigenous Central American peoples. The Aztecs used epilepsy and used the long hollow stem as tubes for water.
Speaking about meanings and symbolization, Dahlias depicts dignity and instability, in the language of the flowers, “as my appreciation goes beyond your care.”
