Weird Beauty

You can love them or hate them, but you can't be indifferent...
Here are some really strange and weird flowers you will probably never get from anyone (unless you live on some exotic island).


Amorphophallus titanum
Giant Voodoo Lily

Voodoo Lily has the world's largest inflorescence of any plant...to 8 feet tall, and they emit a foul odor.



Paeonia brownii
Brown's Peony


Sauromatum venosum



Clematis

Clematis seeds


Daylily "Barracuda Bay"



Tricyrtis formosana
Toad Lily


Tacca integrifolia
White Bat Flower

Tacca chantrierei
Black Bat Flower, Cat's whiskers or Devil flower

Stapelia grandiflora


Stapelia Mutabilis



Banksia







Grevillea




Rafflesia

(This one looks like something from Harry Potter's Herbology class)




Dutchman's Pipe
Aristolochia trilobata


Protea




Passion Flower





Barringtonia asiatica
Commonly known as: barringtonia, fish-killer tree, queen of the shores, sea poison tree...


Dracunculus vulgaris
is variously called the Dragon Arum, Voodoo Lily, Ragons, Snake Lily, Black Arum, Black Dragon, Dragonwort, Stink Lily, Viagra Lily...





And here are some I'm not sure about the names...
