Girl enjoying flowers in her hair

If you didn't think flowers were that funny, think again, as we have dug around (get it?) to find the most fabulous flower jokes and puns about flowers around.

Did you know that broccoli is actually a flower? Don't try buying a bunch of broccoli for your mum or aunt's next birthday though! She might not get the joke.

And not all flowers have a sweet smell. One of the smelliest plants is also one of the rarest and largest. This joke flower is called the titan arum. It's also called the corpse flower because it has the delightful trick of smelling like a rotting dead body.  apparently this attracts flies, which pollinate the plant (which helps it to reproduce).

You can have some fun with flowers in the garden but ALWAYS check with an adult first. Snapdragon flowers (Antirrhinum) can look like little mouths. Try squeezing the sides of a flower - you will see its 'mouth' open. Let it go and its 'mouth' will close! The Lunaria's purple flowers eventually turn into silvery, papery round seedpods. They can be used as play money or you could even try making a necklace out of them,

Here's a bunch of our favourite flower jokes which we hope will have rose to the occasion and got your friends and best buds giggling.
