Any flower can be a weed if it's growing where you don't want it to be!

Quizmaster can there be a little leeway on the spelling of Hydrangea please? I tried several endings but would never have got the answer even though I know the plant. Thank you

Right. I somehow had a cornstalk growing in my flowerbed. I don't grow corn nor do I know anyone who does. I wouldn't call corn a weed, but in that case, it was.

Why did I only remember the Japanese name for Dandilion? (Popotan) and my first guess at Cherry Blossom was also the Japanese and accepted alternative of Sakura Blossom/Tree. At least I did get that one.

Only missed Hydrangea and Dahlia, but I have seen both before. And a dandelion is a wild flower that just happens to be attached to a weed. Not to be scientific or anything.

Missed cherry, lavender and marigold. --- However I am glad the quiz was as simple as it was. I was afraid of it for a while because I don't really know flowers, let alone in English! - Good one :)

Some of these are rather difficult if your native language isn't English. Maybe accept lion's tooth for dandelion?

Yeah, but do you know that the french name is rather "pissenlit" than" Dent-de-lion" ? No, I won't explain the meaning of the former name ^^.

Dandelions are supposed to be diuretics and good for kidney ailments, so it makes perfect sense. :)

Apparently the english language has pissabed and piss-the-bed for dandelion, not sure how prevalent it still is. Wasnt aware french had the word piss(er). And I wanted to say we (dutch) have the word pissebed meaning pillbug, but I found out a century ago we used, like the english and french, that word for dandelion aswell, and apparently it might still be used in some southern dialects.

It is called that for its diuretic properties.

Just my two (euro-)cents, but Orchid might be a bit too general. This is a phalaenopsis (or moth orchid if you prefer).

Ooh, that reminds me of my favorite haiku!

Haikus are easy

But sometimes they don't make sense

Refrigerator

...because it actually contains in its lines the actual whole point of the haiku! It's brilliant, really.

The marigold sure looks like a mum to me. Hmm.
+1
Level 58
Mar 21, 2017
Mums have a lot more petals, all the way to the center, and the petals are usually more teardrop-shaped with smooth edges (yes, I know there are exceptions, like spider mums). Marigolds have that wavy look to their petals, and are a more consistent width throughout. The leaves in the background are definitely distinctively marigold leaves too--they kind of have a fern-like appearance. (I worked in a flower shop :D).

Um, that marigold looks absolutely nothing like what I consider a marigold. And after some of the comments above, I looked up French marigold, and I'm still not seeing it. It looks like a small gerbera daisy to me.

Also, anemone should work for poppy.

I am not sure why this puzzle is considered "hard." I got all but one the first time. The one I missed was dandelion. The way the picture was sized it looked like a zinnia to my.

The Marigold depicted in your quiz is definitely not a Marigold. Marigolds are multi-petaled and the leaves are completely different. The picture shown looks more like an African Daisy.

It definitely was a marigold. That said, I agree that the particular cultivar pictured was not a typical marigold that people are used to. So I changed the image.
