Help me identify flowers!

I need your help, readers! You may have noticed that I enjoy taking pictures of flowers. Some of them are familiar to me (like azaleas, camellias, hydrangeas...), but I must admit that I typically have no idea what I'm looking at. I sometimes put flower photos in my etsy shop with lame titles like "delicate flower," but I'd prefer to be able to be a bit more specific. So... help! If you know what any of these flowers are, please let me know in the comments. Thank you in advance!


I would love for you to share this post on Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest so that I can get more eyes on it, too. Thank you, thank you, thank you! :)

***UPDATE: Success! I posted this in my flickr stream and was directed to an amazing flickr user who identified ALL of these for me--thanks, Brent! I'm posting the list here in case you're curious (and so that I can always find it):

1. Centaurea cyanus (pink form)
2. Zinnia (species)
3. Sisyrinchium campestre
4. Lantana camara (purple)
5. Lantana camara
6. Some type of Daisy
7. Some type of Prunus
8. Brugmansia
9. might be a Coreopsis
10. Salvia
11. Gerbera jamesonii
12. Odontonema strictum
13. Lantana camara
14. Lycoris radiata
15. Lonicera sempervirens
16. Magnolia
