Given all the new colours, many of which are plant based, some people wanted to know what colour these plants are.

Feel to provide any helpful.or informative links. Try to include good pictures.

I was watching MasterChef Australia last night, and they had an elimination round called "Name That Herb".

Out of 20, I got 18 of them right. The only ones that tripped me up were Milk Thistle and Lovage. Flower

Here's some more.

Hydrangea

These mainly come in either blue or pink, and you can treat them to change their colour.

Carnation

WHAT? Peonies smell amazing!

The problem is that the nectar attracts ants, and the flowers drop petals like crazy once they've been cut. They make a great garden flower, though.

They look overblown and messy.

These track the sun across the sky from east to west.

This one surprised me. I didn't know there was a candycane flower.

Didn't know about this, either. Don't think I want to grow them, though.
