When I set out to look in my archives for red flowers that I’ve photographed around the world I found more than I expected. There’s a lot of them out there and they are all beautiful. I also included some that are not technically flowers, but plants. Enjoy this bright flowers from across the globe:
Red flowers at the MPR in India.
A red rose (or is it orange?) at the Rose Test Garden in Portland, OR.
Red plants in Meherazad, India.
Beautiful red carnations of different shades at the mercado de jamaica in Mexico City.
Okay saffron is not a plant or a flower but it is red and it is actually harvested from a flower. Saffron actually consists of the dried stigmas (the thin “hairs” where pollen geminates) of the purple crocus flower.
Tons of red roses at the mercado de jamaica in Mexico City.
Stunning red tulips at the tulip farm in Woodburn, OR.
Poinsettias at the mercado de jamaica in Mexico City.
And finally also at the mercado de jamaica in Mexico City, red flower Elmos and hearts.
Red flowers to the right at the Abkhazi Garden in Victoria BC.
Red carnivorous plants at the greenhouse at Duke University, Durham, NC.
A pretty red plant in Meherazad, India.
And more red flowers stand out in Meherazad, India.
A giant red flower made out of Christmas Lights at the Oregon Garden: Christmas Market.
