I took this picture this evening of this beautiful flower but I don't know what it is. Can anybody tell me what this flower is?What is your favorite flower or plant?

It looks like a double hollyhock -- double meaning that it has two sets of 'petals'. Those are lovely! My favorite flower is probably Monarda didyma. I love the spidery, symetrical flowers and the fragrance of the leaves. I also love how the butterflies and hummingbirds flock to them! The variety of colors and forms are pretty neat, too.

It sounds like you really know your flowers. I am just a piker when it comes to flower types. I think I know the common ones though.

I don't know about 'really knowing' them. :) I've just started my in-depth learning over the past couple of years. I'd love to be an expert, though!

I like lilacs and cammelias. Any vivid beautiful flower is what I like. I usually plant daffodils and tulips in my flower garden. I have a rose bush on the side of the house. What about you? What is your favorite?
