Bleeding Heart...
The bleeding heart flower is one of the spell bounded creation of God, these flowers are very small, approximately 1 inch in size. They are found in pink and red color. They are found in Japan and grow in a cool climate under shades. These flowers are very poisonous so beware when you are around them; however seek medical attention if you devour the bleeding heart flower. The structure of these flowers resembles that of a heart, broken and it shows as if a drop of blood is falling out of it. If you ever get ditched, don’t forget to send a bunch of these flowers to your ex. 
Sad just by looking at it. Don't bleed, can?

Chilean Bell flower...
It's considered by many to be one of the most beautiful flowering vines in the world!  The Chilean Bellflower - Lapageria rosea - was rightfully chosen as the national flower of Chile.  The sumptuous flowers of this cool-climate vine are treasured by gardeners for their beauty. 

Squamopappus skutchii..
It may have a funny-sounding name, but Squamopappus skutchii is worthy of any rare plant collection.  This lovely sunflower relative is new to cultivation and doesn't have a common name yet, so i'm calling it the Guatemalan Sunflower Bush.  It becomes filled with clusters of golden yellow blooms throughout winter, when most other plants are lacking color.  It comes from cool mountain cloud-forests in Guatemala and it is untested in warm climates.  It is very rare,Squamopappus is an upright bush or small tree that grows about 16 feet tall here in San Francisco, although it may be pruned to any height that is convenient.  It is closely related to the rare Podachaenium, and was once considered part of that genus.  In winter, the plant makes rounded clusters of blooms that have a light fragrance.  The blooms are a favorite of honey bees.It comes from mountain cloud forests of Guatemala, where daytime temperatures are usually in the 60s or 70s, and nights are cool but frost-free.  I don't know what it's capable of handling, but it's possible that it won't thrive if temperatures regularly get above the low-80s (28 degrees C), especially if nights are warm.  It probably can survive a few degrees of frost, but since it flowers in winter, i recommend protecting it from freezing temperatures.  It is easy to grow indoors in a pot.  It likes well-draining soil that is kept evenly moist.  Like most cloud forest plants, it prefers filtered sunlight, or morning sun + bright shade.  Protect it from strong afternoon sun.  Over about 40% humidity is recommended.

Passiflora parritae...
The holy grail of passionflowers, Passiflora parritae is as rare as it is beautiful.  Possibly extinct in the wild, this species is almost never seen for sale.  Its stunning flowers might be the largest of all Passifloras.  This cool-climate species is not for everyone, but for those who can provide the right conditions, it is a delightful treasure.  At least enjoy the photos!
Passiflora parritae comes from the mountain forests of Colombia.  It blooms from June through October or November here in San Francisco.  The 5-6 inch wide blooms are an exquisite shade of peachy-orange.  The flower tubes are unusually long, as are the stems.  These enable the blooms to swing in the breeze, which attracts its pollinator, a local species of hummingbird.  Unfortunately the hummingbird has moved to higher elevations due to climate warming, leaving Passiflora parritae to dwindle in numbers without a pollinator.  It is now critically endangered, and possibly gone in the wild.

beautiful in its own way. 

Middlemist camellia...
This is probably the rarest flowering plant in the world as there are only 2 known examples. One can be found in a garden in New Zealand and the other is situated in a greenhouse in Britain. The plant was originally brought to Britain from China by John Middlemist (after whom the plant was named) in 1804. It has since been completely wiped out in China. The plant in Britain remained barren for years and only started bearing flowers recently. The flowers are, contrary to its name, bright pink in color and look almost rose like. It is believed to be highly possible that more examples of this species has survived in people’s gardens, unbeknown to them, as it was once sold directly to the public by John Middlemist.

The Poppy is an angiosperm or flowering plant of the family Papaveraceae. Ornamental poppies are grown for their colorful flowers; some varieties of poppy are used as food, whilst other varieties produce the powerful medicinal alkaloid opium which has been used since ancient times to create analgesic and narcotic medicinal and recreational drugs. Following the trench warfare of the 1st World War which took place in the poppy fields of Flanders, red poppies have become a symbol of remembrance of soldiers who have died during wartime.
Poppy flowers have 4 to 6 petals, many stamens forming a conspicuous whorl in the center of the flower and an ovary consisting of from 2 to many fused carpels. Poppies can grow to be over 4 feet tall, and 6 inches across. (Simon, Chadwick, and Craker 1984) The petals are showy, may be of almost any color and some have markings. The petals are crumpled in the bud and as blooming finishes, the petals often lie flat before falling away. The poppy will become dormant after blooming. Poppies are in full bloom late spring to early summer. (Simon, Chadwick, and Craker 1984) Most species secrete latex when injured. The pollen of the oriental poppy, Papaver orientale, is dark blue. The Papaver Somniferum poppy is mainly grown in Eastern and Southern Asia, and South Eastern Europe. It is believed that it originated in the Mediterranean region. (Jonsson and Krzymanski, 1989) The pollen of the field poppy or corn poppy (Papaver rhoeas) is dark green to grey.

Cannonball Tree...
This flower Origin from Tropical South America. It is popular in botanic gardens and a few larger private gardens because of its bizarre fruit. It is a very tall tree which sheds its large, elliptical leaves several times a year. The pinkish-red flowers grow directly from the trunk near the base of the crown and are strongly scented in the evening. Blooms year round. Flowers are followed by large, globular fruit, reddish-brown in colour, which do indeed resemble cannonballs and remain on the tree for many months. On older trees there may be dozens of fruits and flower clusters at the same time.

Epiphyllum oxypetalum (Dutchman's pipe or queen of the night) is a species of cactus and one of the most cultivated species in the genus. It is a variety of nightblooming Cereus and often confused with species of Selenicereus.Native to Central America and Northern South America.In 1909, C. A. Purpus collected a slightly different type in St. Ana, Orizaba, Mexico. It has carmine red outer petals and the flowers have an unpleasant smell, rather than being fragrant. It was originally named Phyllocactus purpusii, but does probably not deserve any botanical recognition.It can be found from Mexico to Venezuela, as well as Brazil. It also can be found, cultivated in parts of America with warmer temperature such as Texas or California. Epiphytic or lithophytic. 75-2.000 m alt. Widely cultivated and escaped in many places and its true origin has never been fully understood. Linked to the Legend of "BAKAWALI" in most S.E. Asian countries.

Peony Flower With a recorded history that dates back thousands of years, it’s not surprising that even the mythology surrounding the origin of the peony has multiple versions. One legend has it that the peony is named after Paeon, a physician to the gods, who received the flower on Mount Olympus from the mother of Apollo. And another tells the story of that same physician who was “saved” from the fate of dying as other mortals by being turned into the flower we know today as the peony.
The traditional floral symbol of China, the state flower of Indiana, and the 12th wedding anniversary flower, peonies are known as the flower of riches and honor. With their lush, full, rounded bloom, peonies embody romance and prosperity and are regarded as an omen of good fortune and a happy marriage.
In the Language of Flowers, peonies were said to represent bashfulness or even shame. However, today, peony flowers are considered a more luscious symbol of romance, and are thought to be a good omen for happy, prosperous unions. As a gift, these flowers may be given for a variety of reasons – to wish someone a happy life with their new spouse or to celebrate a 12th wedding anniversary. They may represent a wish for the recipient to receive endless love or endless wealth and esteem.

Calla Lilies..
Calla lilies are one of the most beautiful flowers with a unique flower form. Calla lilies come in a wide array of colors viz., shades of green, pink, purple, yellow and orange.
Callas are also known by such other common names viz., arum lily, trumpet lily, Pig lily, or Miniature Calla Lily. Calla lilies are native to Southern Africa. Calla lilies are easy to grow and are generally grown from a bulb or rhizome.
Calla lilies are excellent houseplants, best for beds, borders, bouquets and flower arrangements.
Calla Lilies signify magnificence and beauty. Further combined with the attributes associated with the color you choose, Calla lilies can convey a wealth of meaning.
Calla lilies have long-petioled, basal leaves arising from a thick rhizome. The inflorescence, on a leafless flower stalk, consists of a spathe and spadix. The spathe, a large, flaring, trumpet-shaped bract, surrounds the spadix which is covered with tiny flowers.
Calla lilies average between 1 and 3 feet high and have a diameter of approximately 1 to 1 and 1/2 feet when fully grown. The Calla lily leaves are 1 1/2' long, rich green. The green leaves of the calla lily are shaped like arrowheads and have white or silver speckles.

Anemone is a genus of about 120 species of flowering plants in the family Ranunculaceae, native to the temperate zones. It is closely related to Pulsatilla ('Pasque flower') and Hepatica; some botanists include both of these genera within Anemone.
According to the Oxford English Dictionary, Greek anemōnē means "daughter of the wind", from ánemos "wind" + feminine patronymic suffix -ōnē.[4] The Metamorphoses of Ovid tells that the plant was created by the goddess Venus when she sprinkled nectar on the blood of her dead lover Adonis. The name "windflower" is used for the whole genus as well as the wood anemone A. nemorosa.
Anemone are perennials that have basal leaves with long leaf-stems that can be upright or prostrate. Leaves are simple or compound with lobed, parted, or undivided leaf blades. The leaf margins are toothed or entire.
Flowers with 4-27 sepals are produced singly, in cymes of 2-9 flowers, or in umbels, above a cluster of leaf- or sepal-like bracts. Sepals may be any color. The pistils have one ovule. The flowers have nectaries, but petals are missing in the majority of species.
The fruits are ovoid to obovoid shaped achenes that are collected together in a tight cluster, ending variously lengthened stalks; though many species have sessile clusters terminating the stems. The achenes are beaked and some species have feathery hairs attached to them.
