Photo collage showing different types of Pink flowers.

Here it is - the ultimate list of the 30 best pink flowers. I love these flowers. Very diverse group - light pink, hot pink, bright and every shade in between. Big, tall, small, house plant, garden and more examples.

Fuchsia flowers have more than 100 species, numerous varieties and can survive for hundreds of years. These ornamental flowers can be found everywhere — from the depths of the sea to the high grounds with altitudes as high as 13.900 feet.

Aside from producing pink flowers, other fuchsia varieties produce different colors such as white, yellow, orange, dark red and purple blue. In Japan, fuchsia symbolize good taste.
