I received this flower planter as a gift. The red blooming flowers are geraniums. What are the tall flowers in the planter? They bloom white. Thanks.

It's difficult to tell, especially when the florists sometimes use product to make the leaves shiny. Closest I could guess would b a penstemon...
I could be wrong...

Pretty arrangement, love red and yellow together! I don't know what the yellow flowers are, I thought they were Chrysanthemums but really don't know.

Hi Summer Smiling It looks like the leaves are kind of thick/rigid. Is that right? They also look like they have jagged ends. Am I seeing that right also? Am I looking at the right plants here? Blinking

The yellow flower is an Inca merigold. It's in a different pot. This has to be some type of common annual plant, but it's ok that I don't know what it is. It just gets little white blooms all up and down the stems.

wcgypsy suggested Penstemon. I'm not familiar with Penstemon but the growth habit of the plant in your photo does look similar: http://www.google.com/search?q=White+Penstemon+images&hl=en&...
