Flowers are a great gift given to us by nature. Their uniqueness has inspired him to let the world know about their life through this poem.
Tell me, what is life, without the presence of flowers?
Their looks, fragrance, and charm will make go of sadness and inject happiness in one's mind and heart.
But, did you know there are some flowers having weird names and features? They are those flowers who like to have fun always and forever.
Here are the 5 crazy flowers introducing themselves and their life in a poetic way.
Scientific Name - Psychotria Elata
I am a seductive naughty flower,
For I have lusty hooker's lips,
So don't stare at my tantalizing red lips for too long,
Else, you will not resist kissing me for that long.
My bracts are shaped like lusty red lips,
So as to attract hummingbirds, butterflies and bees for pollination.
I know how naughty I can be,
But that's how nature made me.
The magic of pollination creates tiny white flowers from me,
Whose aromatic scent spreads happiness surrounding me,
Giving the tropical regions of America to see the magic of me.
The birds of Columbia, Costa Rica and Panama are the happiest of all,
Because I prepare blueberries for all.
I get so much of demand throughout that day,
I can be a great gift for your bae.
The Corpse Flower
Scientific Name - Amorphophallus Titanum
Howdy, my name is Corpse Flower,
As I stink like a decomposing corpse.
My colour is a dark burgundy,
That is darling for the bugs.
I smell like dead flesh,
So as to attract the flies to my mesh.
They think I have food for them,
But for pollination I use them.
Rain-forest of Indonesia is my home,
Where for a short period of time I bloom.
It takes me many years to reach a peak of ten,
But you don't even stand near to me within the footsteps of ten,
I feel very sad then.
Mad Dog Skullcap
Scientific Name - Scutellaria Lateriflora
Since eighteen century, Mad Dog Skullcap is my name,
I fought against rabies and saved humans from being listed in the names of deads,
Thus, I have Mad dog in my name.
I bloom from June to October,
And I am a wetland lover.
My calyx is shaped like a skull with a cap,
And thus my surname is Skullcap.
I belong to the family of mint,
Ironically, I don't even have any odour like a mint.
In fact, I don't even have any scent,
But I do have medicinal properties,
That might create serenities,
And fight insomnia-tics.
In North America, God made me 2 feet tall and painted me pale blue.
I do have cousins across the earth who are too painted in the shades of blue.
Scientific Name - Chiranthodendron Pentadactylon
I may look like a devil's hand,
But my heart is very kind,
As I can be a medic to humankind.
I do have devilish powers,
As I can spontaneously grow 12 meters high.
Nectar bats and orioles are my friends from sky-high,
Who help me carry out the witchcraft of pollination.
I belong to the Malvaceae family of Mexico,
And I party with them throughout late springs and early summers like a Yo!
Monkey Face Orchid
Scientific Name - Dracula Simia
I am called Monkey Faced Orchid by florists.
I am also called Dracula by botanists.
But, you don't have to be scared of me,
As I don't drink blood, but only water.
I grow according to my mood,
And In any seasons, I can be viewed.
I live in Peru,
And I smell like ripe Orange.
Don't try to eat me,
Because I am a flower and not the fruit Orange.
So here are we the five unusual flowers,
Who spreads the charm over the planet earth.
Protect us, save us, plant us and we will keep the charm same.
