The key to beautiful flower photography is sharp focus, diffused even light, and a tight crop.
You need be well aware of your background while composing for your flower. Make sure your background complements your photo, and doesn’t detract from it with cluttered irrelevant subjects that draw focus away from your flower, or with poor color combinations that clash with the colors of your flower. Fill the frame with your flower of interest, and use a large opening to blur out the background as much as possible.
Flowers look best with macro photography because it allows you to move close to your flower, cutting out all distractions without losing focus. Also if you don’t have a macro lens or extension tube, try shooting with your camera set to macro mode.
Now the closer you get to your flower, the less light is likely to reach the flower and so the illumination might be a little poor. You need to photograph your flower when the light is at its best such as early in the morning, just before sunset, or on overcast days. Harsh light does not suit flower photography, because it tends to wash out the bright vibrant colors of the flowers.
