Irish flowers

Flowers are everywhere in Ireland — cultivated in gardens, hanging in pots, growing wild by the roadside. I saw plenty of flowers I’d never seen before, and some flowers that I had seen before were in colors you don’t find in Indiana! Here’s a solid sampling of the flowers I photographed. I have no idea what most of these are, so if you can help me in the comments I’d be grateful!

    No idea, looks great though.

    Gardening is apparently a totally different sport in a land when it rains constantly.

    • We were shocked to see ferns growing all over the place. In the midwestern US, those are indoor plants only because of the amount of water and care they take.

    The Yellow one looks like a Buttercup the next one after that is a Hydrangea, the seventh one is a Fuschia. Number 11 looks like a Osteospermum (Cape Daisy), the last looks like Morning Glory (Convolvulaceae), number 9 looks like a Agapanthus africanus( African Lily) and number 6 looks like a White Dog Rose.
    Nice photos BTW.

    Agree with Christopher that the seventh one is fuschia. We grow them out here in Oregon. don’t know any of the others, though.
