Ophrys apifera is one of the most stunningly unusual flowers there are. That reminds me of a happy bumblebee. This flower can be found in places like Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa, but it is critically threatened due to its difficulty in reproduction.
11.Parrot Flower ( Impatiens Psittacina)
The balsam family includes the amazing Impatiens Psittacina. The blossoms have shades of purple and carmine crimson. The blossoms have been likened like a parrot in flight when viewed from the sides. The term "flying cockatoo" refers to the way the plant's blossom resembles the bird and was coined by British botanist and explorer Sir Joseph Dalton Hooker in a 1901 scientific description.
Thailand, Burma, and some regions of India are home to this rare flower.
10. Bleeding Heart (Lamprocapnos)
|Bleeding Heart Flower|
The bleeding heart, or Lamprocapnos, is a flowering plant in the poppy family that, while in bud form, has a strange resemblance to the usual shape of the heart with a droplet beneath it.
It's been called a bleeding heart because of this. The outer petals are a vivid shade of fuchsia. As the flower continues to open, the inner, white sections, sometimes referred to as the "woman in a bath," become more apparent.
Siberia, northern China, Korea, and Japan are all home to this beautiful flower.
9. Black Bat Flower
The black bat flower or tacca chantireri is an unusual flowering plant that found in Thailand, India, Malaysia and East Asia. As its name indicates the plant has unique bat-shaped purple-black flowers. This bizarre flower grows 12 inches across and has long stems which reach up to a length of 28 inches. The long black stems or whiskers make ‘bat in flight’ like appearance of this bizarre flower.
8. Subterranean Plant (Hydnora africana)
This underground plant from South Africa is one of the most unusual species on our planet. In South Africa's arid regions, it is actually rather abundant, despite its bizarre appearance. The Jackal Food, or Hydnora africana, as it is more often known, is a leafless, rootless, and chlorophyll-free plant. Its blossoms emerge from the soil after nearly a year, making this plant entirely a parasitic underground one. Hydnora africana may look and smell horrible, but its berries are wonderful when roasted over an open fire.
7. The Swaddled Babies Orchid
The exotic swaddle babies orchid or anguloa uniflora flowers are native to Colombian Andes of South America. The flowers have an opening in their upper parts and inside look like a swaddled baby. The flowers also have a hinged lip. The anguloa uniflora plant bloom in summer. The large waxy flowers grow 10 cm across and they are very fragrant.
Rafflesia keithii or Corpse flower is an extremely rare flower that exclusively grows in the rainforest of Indonesia.
What makes this flower weird is the fact it does not have any leaves, roots or stem. Although its look has nothing to do with its names, its smell does.
This individual flower smells like a corpse.
6. Jade Vine (Strongylodon Macrobotrys)
The Jade Vine can grow to an astounding 20 metres high and looks a little like a gathering of heavy curtains. This particular specie is pollinated by bats, which appear fascinated by the luminosity of the vine’s flowers.
Found in the Philippines, the Jade Vine may not be around for much longer due to extensive deforestation in its native country. If you want to check it out, now is the time to do so.
5. Dancing Lady Orchid
The flowers of the dancing lady orchid (oncidium) get their name from their graceful movements. The flower's broad lip and diminutive upper half bring to mind a graceful ballerina. Plants belonging to the genus Oncidium are native to the humid forests of South America, Central America, and Mexico. You may find these lovely orchid blooms all through the year. Each stem is covered with dozens of blooms. Pink, white, yellow, and red are only some of the colors represented by the blooms.
4. Hooker’s Lip Flower
Hooker's lips is the common name for the flowering plant Psychotria elata, so named for the brilliant red bracts that resemble moist lips. It is widely agreed that Psychotria elata is the most kissable plant on the planet. Rain forests in South and Central America are home to its natural habitat. This red-lip shaped blossom only lasts a short while, unfortunately. A fresh, smaller white flower then emerges from the center of the big red bracts, and the lip-like structure gradually fades away.
3. Flying Duck Orchid
One of Australia's most spectacular blossoms is the Celena major, sometimes known as the flying duck orchid. As its common name suggests, this orchid gets its name from the shape of its blossom, which resembles a duck in flight. The only places in Australia where you may find this extraordinary bloom are in the south and east. This beautiful variety of orchid has flowers that range in color from brown to purple. The plant's sepals and petals are only about 1.5 cm long. The plant's "duck in flight" form also draws in pollinators.
2. Naked Man Orchid
Naked man orchids, or orchis italica, are a kind of flowering plant native to the Mediterranean. The shape of this extraordinary blossom reminds one of a shirtless man's happy face. The plant can attain a maximum height of 20 inches when grown at an altitude of 1300 meters. In March and April, you can see the naked man orchid in full flower. The beautiful flowers, which range from pink to purple in color, occur in dense clusters. Orchis italica blossoms have both male and female reproductive structures.
1. The Corpse Flower (Rafflesia arnoldii)
This is one of the world's largest flowers, with a diameter of more than 3 feet. Yet, this flower does not have a sweet fragrance like others. It's one of the smelliest things ever. There's a reason it's dubbed a corpse flower: it has a putrid aroma. These blooms are also unusual in that they lack a stem and foliage.
They are exceedingly hard to locate in the wild. Only in the Indonesian jungles do they thrive.
Amorphophallus titanum is another rare plant that originates from Indonesia. Corpse Lily is a blooming flower that rarely blooms. In fact, when this rare flower blooms it makes the headlines.
It is also one of the largest flowers on earth. It can grow up to 12 feet tall and it weights 100 pounds.
