101 Pink and Fuchsia Flowers With Names and Pictures

Are you thinking of planting some pink flowers this season? Pink flowers are a staple of just about every flower garden. It's critical to have the right balance of color, and pink flowers can bring exactly that balance. In this massive guide, we examine more than 100 of our favorite pink flowers that you can plant in your garden this season.

Pink Flowers in Garden

From shocking magenta to soft cotton candy, pink is a shade that evokes a certain sense of fun, femininity, and playfulness that is unique to this side of the color spectrum. The sheer variety of pink flowers is seemingly limitless, so coming up with a monochromatic flower bed plan is surprisingly tricky for us gardeners with plant-related decision-making paralysis.

Fundamental to a well-rounded monochrome garden is diversity within your chosen shade. Otherwise, your sweet peas, begonias, and poppies will blend in with one another, masking the beauty of the individual blossoms.

Do your research and incorporate staggering bloom times, different flower shapes, and, of course, shades of pink to optimize visual interest and keep your garden producing flowers well into the fall. To add texture, you’ll want a variety of different flower types in your garden. Combine perennial flowers with annual flowers, bordering plants with groundcover, and plenty of tall foliage.

To help you choose the perfect arrangement of peachy pink, candy-coated coral, and delicate blush, we’ve rounded up 101 of our favorite pink and fuchsia flowers for your home or garden. Don’t be afraid to bring in accents of white flowers to soften the effect, or orange flowers if you want to electrify the mix!

While the Sensitive Briar looks quite like its cousin discussed below, this variety has a unique trait that earned this tiny flower its nickname of “Shame Vine.” If you touch the leaves resting below the bright pink filaments forming the ball-shaped flora, they curl inwards, moving away from the source of contact.

It’s a wonder to behold, made all the better by the easy maintenance of this perennial cutie that stays in bloom from April to July.

  • Plant Type: Perennial
  • Range: Zones 8-10
  • Watering Requirements: Low-average
  • Sun Requirements: Full-partial sun
  • Soil Requirements: Loam, sand, all soil pH, moist but well-drained

Almost clover-like in appearance, Sunshine Mimosa flowers consist of long, pink stamen shooting out of a fuchsia center anchor.

Triple petal layers of the Sweet Memories Gerbera Daisy shift from flamingo pink to a much softer blush before joining together into a powder puff of buttery yellow anthers.
