Most Beautiful but Strange Flowers
While many might consider it an exaggerated description, the Psychotria Elata, also called the Hookers Lips or Kissing Lips plant, is absolutely genuine. It exists in the tropical rainforests of Central and Southern Africa. The waxy bract, which is a modified or specialized leaf, associated with the flower, is bright red in colour, and is shaped like the luscious lips of a woman, complete with a welldefined cupids bow. The actual starshaped flowers emerge from the bracts centre.
