Flowers of Pakistan

Post by Maryam » September 22nd, 2012, 11:40 am

Hello everyone!

I need help with a project I am working on called Flowers of Pakistan. I need names of flowers, at least 15, that are grown in Pakistan and also in which part of the country and what season.

I searched the internet to get these answers but haven't had much success. I read the message threads on the forums on this website and found that this is a serious forum with members who know and love everything about flowers.

Assuming this is not an academic assignment (as a teacher I wouldn't encourage anyone getting complete online homework help) you should check the database maintained by University of Florida:

http://www.tropicos.org/Project/Pakistan

Or for more formal work, see "Flora of Pakistan" by Dr. Irtefaq Ali.

See wikipedia for " Flora of Pakistan". In a strict sense the flowers of Pakistan should be native, and naturally growing species not something that is imported in recent years.

Regards,

Farooq

Dear Mr. Farooq,

Thank you for the information. No, I don't need the information for an academic project :-) . I appreciate your conscientiousness :-)
