World's Most Rare Flowers

Passion flower

Green Jade Flower..
The rare and beautiful green jade flower is distinct for its blue-green 
petals and navy-purple center. It looks like a fuschia plant on an acid trip.

Blue Bell Tunicate

Winning no awards as an anniversary bouquet, this remarkable – or remarkably ugly – flower nevertheless captivates plenty of folks. The rafflesia is a parasitic plant with a flesh-like bloom the size of an armchair and a stench that’s unmissable if you’re even remotely close. The smell is so bad, in fact, that it’s often called the corpse flower or meat flower. (The Titan Arum, another stinky flower, is also called the corpse flower, but these two plants should not be confused.)

The Ghost Orchid...
The Orchid does not have leaves. So it uses chlorophyll in its roots to prepare food. The flower has a ghostly white color hence the name Ghost orchid. The flower reaches upto 25 cm in diameter and has got a clean soapy smell.

Drosera Capensis..
This flower is also known as Cape Sundew. It is a carnivorous species feeding on insects. It has got strap like leaves which grow to about 3.5 cm long and 0.5 cm wide. These straps are covered with brightly coloured tentacles used to catch prey. Its flower is 5-petalled
 and pink in color.

Luscious Lotus

Tacca Chantrieri..The black bat flower, or tacca chantrieri, is exceptionally rare and quite beautiful. The flowers can reach over 12″ in diameter and each bloom typically has many “whiskers” that can grow to two feet or more in length.

Nepenthes Tenax..
From the species of tropical flesh-eating pitcher plant, the nepenthes tenax has been spotted in the Northern Queensland, Australia. The Nepenthes Tenax can grow a maximum height of 100 cm with vines exceeding to 25 cm high. Nepenthes Tenax is regarded as exceptional specie of pitcher flower since others can only grow at a maximum height of 15 cm.

The Legendary Flower..
The Kadupul Flower begins blooming just before midnight and dies within a matter of hours. Because of its extremely short lifespan, even in its native Sri Lanka, the flower is rarely seen. The Kadupal Flower has been mythologized throughout history, and is referred to as the legendary flower of the Celestial Nagas. However, because of its ludicrously short lifespan the flower’s monetary value is pretty much nil.

Orchid ..
That Looks Like A Monkey When you look at these flowers it's not surprising that they're called Monkey Orchids. These rare flowers can be found in Ecuador and Peru.

Ghost Flower ( Indian Pipe)

Wijayakusuma flower also called Moon Flower grows in the highlands of Papua in Indonesia.This is a very special flower that blooms only one night out of a 
whole year for only two hours. 

"White Kauai rosemallow, koki'o-ke'oke'o, koki‘o kea (Hibiscus waimeae) is an endemic Hawaiian native plant that is found in the Waimea Canyon, Kauai, Hawaii. Its bloom opens white and the turns pink in tha afternoon as it ages. If you look closely, you can see the petals just starting to turn colors."

Lady's Slipper..
LADY’S-SLIPPER , a wild flower of the orchid family. It grows in cool, deep woods and damp marshes. About ten species are found in North America.
The Indians called one of the large pink lady’s-dippers the moccasin flower. Its Latin name, cypripedium, means “slipper of Venus,” the goddess of gardens. These names were given the plant because the lower part of its Sower shaped like the front part of a slipper. This pouch like slipper is usually gaily colored. In it is sweet nectar that attracts insects. Above the slipper part are two petals and three.

Titan ..
The titan arum or amorphophallus titanum (basically, titanic penis) is not the world’s biggest flower, but it does have the world’s biggest inflorescence. Like the rafflesia, it also grows in Sumatra and also is called the corpse flower after its notoriously rotten stench.
