I remember there was this British? comedy show on a long time ago, but I
don't remember the name. Can anyone identify it?

* Probably around 10 or 15 years ago it was on TV (I remember watching it)
* It was in colour
* One of the main characters was an old lad

I *think* it was "keeping up appearances".

There is a British comedy show on our local PBS station, weekly, "Keeping up Appearances". The Main character's name is Hyacinth.

If all the main female characters had names that were also flowers then yes it was.  
As the UK has many old ladies and some of them are actresses, there will be many of them appearing in various sit-coms and shows! :)

Hyacinth, Rose, Violet, Daisy.
Bouquet - or Bucket as one prefers.

Oh, there was a recent Penny Arcade comic strip that perfectly captures
this scenario:

That's the one with the "Bucket Lady".  Her last name was "Bucket", but she
always pronounced it like "Bouquet".

There was Violet, she was the one with a "Mercedes, sauna, and room for a pony " and had the cross dressing husband. In all the episodes I think she was only seen once or twice.

That is one possibility with the main character Hyacinth Bucket (pronounced by her as Bouquet), another is 'Waiting for God' set in an old peoples home, the central theme being an ongoing hate relationship between a guy and a women in adjacent units, who hated each other.

There have been a number of British sitcom series along similar lines.
