What is the scientific name of a rose? tulip? daisy? pansy? sunflower? carnation?
Rose ...Rosa berberifolia


Daisy...Bellis simplex

Pansy....Viola tricolor


Carnation....Dianthus caryophyllus

Below is the link to The home page for Wikipedia, where I found the carnation answer. You might want to click on it and then bookmark it. It's a free online encyclopedia and a great place to find answers for your homework.
Reply:I would beg to differ that it is a "great place to find answers for your homework" Wikipedia can be changed by anyone who can access the site and while it has a plethora of information it is not always accurate. Report It

The family Asteraceae or, alternatively, Compositae, known as the aster, daisy or sunflower family, is a taxon of dicotyledonous flowering plants. The family name is derived from the genus Aster and refers to the star-shaped flower head of its members, epitomized well by the daisy. The Asteraceae is the second largest family in the Division Magnoliophyta, with some 1,100 genera (See List) and over 20,000 recognized species. Only the orchid family (Orchidaceae) is larger, with about 25,000 described species.

The Pansy or Pansy Violet is a cultivated garden flower. It is derived from the wildflower called the Heartsease or Johnny Jump Up (Viola tricolor), and is sometimes given the subspecies name Viola tricolor hortensis. However, many garden varieties are hybrids and are referred to as Viola × wittrockiana. The name "pansy" also appears as part of the common name of a number of wild flowers belonging, like the cultivated Pansy, to the violet genus Viola. One or two unrelated flowers such as the Pansy Monkeyflower also have "pansy" in their name.

I hope this will be help.

Should help.
