Is there anything more soothing than walking through nature and looking at lovely flowers? Except for lying on the couch, I can only think of like 3 or 4 other things. And since flowers get a solid spot in the top 10, it seems only natural that we’d give them some more attention.
It’s hard to put a ranking on beauty since that’s a highly personal thing, so it makes more sense to go into the wilds and find the most unique flowers for you to enjoy. Let’s go!
Snap Dragon and Skull
We’ll start off with a weird one: this plant looks like a dragon’s head and the maw closes and opens as you squeeze the plant. Once the flower withers, like heads to, it turns into a skull. Perfect for that Halloween garden!
This plant is huge! It’s up to three feet wide, that’s about one meter for people who use a measuring system that makes sense. The reason why it got its name is because it smells like a dead body. Just what you’ve always wanted a big, wide, stinky plant that smells like your uncle Harold’s feet just before he died.
This is quite a fascinating and unique plant. First of all, it eats insects. Second of all, none other than Darwin wrote a whopping 285 pages about this plant. I can’t even write a 3500 word essay so this is a very interesting plant to be sure.
