About This Quiz

The end of winter, with its dreary gray skies, endless cold, ice and snow and 4:00 p.m. sunsets, leaves us craving the welcome changes that come with the beginning of spring. Somewhere around the third week of March—at least in the Northern Hemisphere—sandals begin to replace snow boots, birds start making their way back up north and heavy winter gloves are thrust aside for gardening gloves. After all, what's the start of spring without some brilliant blossoms to brighten things up?

While almost all spring flowers add cheer and a pop of glorious color, that's pretty much the only thing they have in common. Some are annuals while others are perennials; some are deciduous with broad leaves while others are evergreens that produce cones; some will grow anywhere, while others need about the same level of attention as a newborn baby; select species remain fresh for days or weeks after cutting, while others start to wilt the same day; and while most spring flower species are totally benign, a scary few hide powerful poison behind their colorful petals.

Think you can tell the difference between one species of spring flowers and another? Prove it with this quiz!
