Re La fleur est jolie. Elle est jolie: could one also say

C'est jolie?

Bonjour Susan ! No, as here it is not a general statement but rather a specific statement on that specific flower, hence "elle". Moreover, "c'est jolie" is incorrect as "c'est" is also followed by the masculine form of the adjective. It would be "c'est joli". See also: Standalone adjectives after c'est are always masculine I hope that's helpful! À bientôt !
