Winter will soon be on its way out. In a couple of months, the snow will hopefully melt and the flowers will bloom. Love will be in the air, and you may want to give your special someone something pretty to tell them you”ve been thinking of them.
But be careful that you choose the right flowers. Although most flowers are universally pleasant to have around, there are some flowers that look and smell like death. If you want your relationship to last, refrain from offering bae these craptacular flowers.
Arum dioscoridis releases a very distinct smell so that it can attract flies that act as a pollinator. What kind of smells do flies like? Poopy ones. So yeah, it smells like poop.
When the snapdragon flower is in full bloom, it can be one of the most beautiful flowers in the garden. When it dies, its seeds look like the skulls of screaming gremlins.
This looks like a horror you might see at the bottom of the sea, but the rafflesia is actually a huge parasitic flower that has no roots of its own. Instead, it latches onto and grows within vines. Also, they stink pretty bad, so that guy should probably move his head.
Though its petal”s pretty shade of violet is undeniable, the dracunculus vulgaris is most famous for its other defining feature: smelling exactly like rotten flesh.
The dead horse arum lily got its name basically because it looks like something died. Like many of these flowers, it doesn”t have a scent so much as a smell. And that smell ain”t good.
The proportions in this picture are correct. The amorphophallus titanum can reach up to 10 ft in height. It”s also known as “the corpse flower,” not only because it smells like a dead person, but it can also heat itself up to the approximate temperature of a human being.
Roses are red, violets are blue, and these flowers smell like straight up doo doo. Just a little poem I wrote. (Really utilizing my English degree on that one.)
