Top 10 Prettiest Flowers

Pink Whirls

Pink whirls, or Osteospermum, are extraordinarily beautiful flowers that resemble pink pinwheels from an alien planet. The blooms have a striking blue and yellow center that's surrounded by purple and pink petals that are wide around the base, then turn tubular before opening back up at the tip in a spoon- or cup-like shape.

These unusual blooms are a form of African daisy, but don't expect to find them at your local florist, as their strange beauty isn't yet appreciated by the masses (at least on this planet).
