Flowers Starting with K
Here is the group of flowers starting with the letter K.
The Kaffir Lily (Clivia miniata) really knows how to put on a show - the display of its vivid buds is a spectacular precursor of spring. The conspicuous funnel-shaped blooms are produced in an umbellate-shaped flower head, colored yellow, red, or orange.
The Kalanchoe blossfeldiana, commonly known as Kalanchoe, is among the most versatile succulents and is loved for its pretty leaves and colorful blooms. Their flowering time is incredibly long for an indoor plant. These yellow, pink or bright red flower racemes last for several weeks.
Kalmia flowers can only grow wild in a few selected habitats worldwide and are perhaps better known as mountain laurel. Each flower (up to 1 inch wide) is cup-shaped with 5 sides and ranges from white to pink with purple markings interior.
Broussaisia arguta, also known as the Kanawao, is a perennial in the Hydrangeaceae (hydrangea) family, native to Hawaii. It's the only species in the monotypic Broussaisia genus. As with common hydrangea varieties, their blooms range from creamy yellow to blue, lavender, and magenta, but the resemblance ends there.
Unlike any other flower, the Kangaroo Paw (Anigozanthos flavidus) has long club-shaped buds covered with thick hairs of a deeper hue than the flowers. The flower can be brown, orange, pink, red, yellow, or green, depending on the species.
Kennedia is a genus of about 13 species of flowering perennials in the Fabaceae (pea) family and is native to Australia. The flowers are often arranged in the axils of the leaves, relatively showy and prominent, purple, blue, red, or almost black with leaf-shaped bracts at the base, but occasionally drooping when the flowers open.
Aloe arboresens is a perennial succulent of the order Asparagales. It can grow to a height of 2-3 meters. The bitter juice of the Aloe arborescens has medicinal uses. For example, the burn victims of WWII were treated with the concoctions of Aloe.
