In scenarios with pollen Allergies, which flowers are your favorite?

I've never seen a question like this, thought I'd go for it. 

Hibiscus to me is fun. I feel like since the center sticks out so inducing with it would be fun to watch.  I also think dandelions are really good. I'm surprised no one talks about them, considering how easy it would be for a seed to get stuck up someone's nose accidentally.

Oh yeah, dandelions are great. I've seen a few around here and there that mention them, but you're right- there could definitely be more!

I think my own personal favorite though are Easter lilies. As someone who's worked with them... Man, the pollen gets EVERYWHERE

And it's sticky and the fragrance is really strong

Not to mention since they're usually decorating churches out the wazoo that time of year... :devil2:

I'm clueless about flowers and which are more prone to causing allergic reactions, so don't mind me as I follow this thread... for science.

Only flower that ever got to me is hyacinth. That's a mean flower. :whip: But I'm not sure if it's pollen or the scent. 

I love allergies to lilacs, lilies, lilies-of-the-valley, jasmines... and roses, although I've been informed that roses are in fact one of the best flowers for allergies because they've been bred (do you say that about plants? Cultivated? Bred? Anyway, you know what I mean) to have very little, if any, pollen. But I still love the idea of rose allergies because of the aesthetics. :wub: And there's still the chance of people being sensitive to the fragrance, if not to pollen, and I think that's at least one part of flower allergies. ^^

How would allergies work with dandelions - I mean, they look all sneeze-provoking with all that fuzz, but aren't those seeds too big? Maybe I'm just stuck on the idea that pollen grains are supposed to be so microscopic they get into the body and wreak all kinds of havoc with the confused immune defence? :huh:

I believe that is true about roses, but who knows. Maybe your character's allergies to pollen are just THAT bad :razz:

I mean it is possible. Most likely by accident. They aren't that big unless we're measuring my length instead of width. This is honestly the weirdest conversation I've ever had, but also the most amusing :laughingsmiley:

Sadly, it's not by far the weirdest conversation I've had. :lol::shy: But yeah, I suppose it's possible, I mean, it seems possible to be allergic to anything. But it does seem like sneezes from dandelion seeds would more likely be because of the physical irritation from getting them up the nose, rather than an allergic response. Not an allergist, I can't say for sure, of course. :lol: 

Yeah, it's sad, roses are beautiful and so are allergies. :yay: But like you say, maybe they're just THAT allergic. ^_^

Just looked it up apparently it induces allergic reactions slightly more often then average. It counts as a ragweed plant. Interesting to know, very interesting...

Now I wonder about your conversations, but at least this is entertaining. Next fic you do should be with roses somehow. :thumbs_up:

I have really bad hay fever, and almost any flower can get my really sneezing. Daffodils and Crysanthemums are the two big ones that really throw me into a fit, but my favourite would have to be lilies.

DANDELION counts as a RAGWEED plant??? 'kay. Interesting indeed... You learn something new every day. And I thought I had a pretty good grip on allergies, but then again, it's mainly been tree and grass pollen that I've made, um, reserarch in. :whistle: 

Let's say I've wondered about my conversations too!! :rofl: And yup, rose allergies are on the list, although not on top of it right now. :P

Thank you! I totally just wrote something with Chrystanthemums being the culprit, wondering how realistic it was for setting off a really bad allergy attack, but I wanted a flower that blooms in November and comes in pink, so that's my pick. :lol:

It's very realistic. Believe me when I say those flowers set me off like a land mine or something XD

Interesting.... oh, sorry! :laugh: Now I'm rude. That sucks, for real. But interesting for fictional purposes. :yay:
