    Just have a few pics here of some flowers my dad brought home, he delivers them tomarrow for Valentines. Just wondering if anyone knows specific spp. / var. I know 2 is a lily, and 3 is a type of orchard, 1 might be a daisy? I'd love to know, as I have a photo collection of my ID'd plants ongoing. Thanks.

    Number 2 appears to be Asiatic lillium
    Number 3 is an orchid, maybe cymbidium??

    Just a guess, but might the first picture be some kind of Chrysanthemum?

    Might be, I've never really looked into Daisies or Chrysanthemums.

    They look so close that I find it hard to tell. I think Carrbowl has the right ID being a Gerber Daisies. Both are used a lot as cut flowers

    Yes:

    Transvaal daisy
    Asiatic lily
    Cymbidum orchid

    All sold as potted flowering plants in markets and flower shops.
