List Rules Songs with flowers in the title are fair game, but this list focuses mainly on songs about flowers as a subject.

Over the years there have been a lot of songs about roses, daisies, tulips and other beautiful flowers. Flowers in music often represent a romance, regardless of whether that romance is blossoming or wilting away. This is a ranked list of all songs about flowers, as voted on by music fans like you. Some of the songs included below may have the words "flowers" or "rose" in the lyrics or title, while others are about flowers as a subject or theme. Songs like Seals "Kiss From a Rose" and Grateful Dead's "Sugar Magnolia" are great examples of songs that beautifully touch on the idea of flowers.

Music isn't typically categorized by the meaning of the words, so this music list is a great way to find some solid flower tracks that are thematically similar (maybe you can listen to them while gardening!) Vote for the flower songs that you enjoy the most, and downvote ones if you think they're not worthy of being high on the list. If one of your top songs is missing, add it to the list so others can vote for it too. Many genres of music are featured below, including rock, pop, folk, metal, and more.
