7 Most Expensive Flowers On The Planet
Flowers are the precious and beautiful gift of nature to humans. And some flowers are so beautiful and rare that they became the most expensive flowers in the world.
If you think that you have read about the expensive things a lot, then you should think again.
You may think that flowers can’t sell for millions but here is an awakening proof for you.
Kadupul Flower (Priceless)
Native to Sri Lanka, Kadapul is actually a cactus and only blooms at night. The flower is priceless as it cannot be sold due to its short life span, and it is so rare.
Juliet Rose - $15.8 Million
Showcased at Chelsea Flower Show in 2006, Davis Austin, who invested 15 years in growing the Juliet Rose, sold it for a whopping amount of $15.8 million, making it the most expensive flower.
Shenzhen Nongke Orchid - $200,00
Not the one from nature but a breed of orchids that took eight hours in the process is in the list of most expensive flowers in the world because of its beauty, rarity, background and difficulty in cultivation.
Gold Of Kinabalu Orchid - around $6000 per piece
This beauty grows only in Malaysia’s Kinabalu National Park and is expensive for its rarity and beauty. It is, sort of, on the verge of extinction right now!
Saffron Crocus - around $1500 per pound
This flower gives us our very beloved spice, Saffron. The high rate is justified as around 70,000 flowers are needed to extract 1 pound of Saffron.
Tulips - $5700
Tulips are not expensive everywhere. Their prices jumped to the sky in the 17th century in Holland as wealthy Dutch flower lovers went crazy for them.
Bouquet of Orchids, Lilies, Moonflowers, & Root of a 100-Year-Old Ficus - $125,000
You may think about why we kept it at number five. The reason is that this bouquet of flowers also consisted of 90 2-carat ruby facets as well as nine one-carat diamonds and 21.6-carat star ruby.
Try gifting the most expensive flower to your Girlfriend, and we bet she will never dump you!
Even yellow flowers will do the magic when they come with a high price tag!
