The whole point of a plant having a flower, is to attract insects to collect the plants pollen, and therfore reproduce. Over generations certain plants have struck mutual partnerships with certain insects. Therefore every plant is advertising to a different insect to come and collect its pollen, so they each evolve their own coloured flowers to act as advertising boards, and to make themselves recognisable to their particular insect...

Shifty37 is 100% correct. It's evolution ;) though some of them have been bred or genetically altered by humans to be a certain color or show certain traits.
