Discovered in the Philippines in 2007, Attenborough’s pitcher plant (named after the famous naturalist Sir David Attenborough) is a carnivorous plant with bell-shaped flowers that collect water to trap animals for it to eat. While the main diet of the plant is insects, in 2012 the digested skeleton of a shrew was found in one of the flowers, hence its reputation as a ‘rat-catching’ plant. Perhaps not the best flowers for gifts…

There are thousands of species of orchids and they come in endlessly fascinating forms, many which are available for online flower delivery in UK. There can look like red lips, a monkey’s face and even naked men, so you can guess how the bumblebee orchid gets it’s name. By mimicking the look and scent of female bees, the orchid attracts male bees that try to mate with the flower. Pollen sticks to the bee’s body, allowing the plant to reproduce. Flowers24Hours has a stunning range of orchids for same day flower delivery London UK.

The titan arum gives off a pungent odour of rotting flesh in order to attract insects to pollinate it, thus earning the alternative name ‘corpse flower’. It can grow over 3 metres heigh and though it can take ten years to bloom, it will only be in bloom for a day. It’s related to the calla lily which bears some resemblance to it’s shape but fortunately doesn’t have the corpse flower’s distinctive smell! Take a look at these calla lilies available for same day flower delivery and international flower delivery.

Other flowers that give off the smell of carrion are the dead horse arum lily, the pelican flower and the largest flower on Earth: the rafflesia, which can grow up to 3 feet across and weigh up to 15 pounds. Not only does it smell like rotting meat, it’s fleshy red petals look like it too!

The aquatic wolffia, commonly called watermeal, is the smallest flower in the world. These oval-shaped green plants are less than 2mm long, have no roots and float on the surface of the water. They resemble cornmeal floating on the water, and are traditionally eaten in Asia. These little flowers aren’t the best choice for a bouquet, so to order flowers in London we recommend you take a look at the bountiful blooms UK florist Flowers24Hours have on offer!
