Hi all,

I was wondering what the different flower types are in this game. Using Google translate, I seem to have most of them:

Rose = Rose
Storchschnabel = Cranesbill/Geranium
Nelke = Carnation
Mohn = Poppy
Sonnenblume = Sunflower
Margertie = Daisy
Kornblume = Cornflower
Aster = Aster

But I'm having a little trouble with "Fantasieblume". Translate says it's "Imaginary Flower", but I've seen different posts here calling a Lily and a Fantasia. Does anyone know? (I don't know anything about the different kinds of flowers)

Can't help you here. But I if I ever form a cold-wave goth synth band, I'm going to name it Fantasieblume.

In the 'Illustrated FlowerPower[sic] CJC Flower Names.pdf' file on BBG the translation is 'Fantasia'.

It's not a real flower. "Fantasieblume" means something like "fantasy flower" or "made up flower". So "Fantasia" is pretty accurate.

CU,

I had a feeling it wasn't a real flower, but for all I know there are flowers called Fantasias out there.

Thank you guys for all your help!
