learning my flowers

I've always had a love for flowers. But lately, I have been seeing amazing arrangements and I want to know the names of all the flowers.  I am beginning a career in becoming a florist but I just would love to be more knowledgeable in this area. I saw this image on Design*Sponge today and thought it was a helpful first step. I know my favorites from planning my own wedding- sweet little ranunculus, peonies, green button mums. But i had no idea what a muscari was?!? or what geranium leaves looked like. I did know what an anemone but it did take me a while to get the pronunciation down. I love black + white anemones.  

As I am working on my senior capstone project (book design of how to to design your wedding), I have viewed so many fabulous bouquets and have been dying to know what the flowers were.  Here are some lovelies:

Ah, my beloved peonies. My fav flower...I fell in love with it when registering for our china..Kate Spade used a peony in her vase advertisement in 2008. Big fluffy flowers in a modern and clear polka dotted

Such a lovely and detailed bouquet

Neighbors on the color wheel looking good together.
