About This Quiz

This floral quiz is full of flowers and foliage!

Plant life is essential to us as humans. In fact, whether directly or indirectly, we all in some way end up getting virtually all of our energy from plants (which in turn get their energy from the sun), since the animals that we eat get their energy from plants in some way or the other. 

Throughout all of human history, plants have been a source of sustenance. Even long before the advent of farming, early humans still gathered plant materials to eat. However, we have always had to make sure that we take care to eat plant materials that are safe since so many of them can make us sick or even kill us. 

While everyone knows about the wide array of fruits and vegetables that are edible, not many people are aware of the fact that countless flowers are actually tasty (and good for you!) as well. In this quiz we've gathered together a handful of some often most notable edible flowers; do you think that you can identify them all? Who knows, maybe you have a few of them in your garden! Let's jump right in and see if you can name them all correctly.
