7 Rare Flowers I Met in 2017

It is really a miracle how happy flowers are! Happiness radiates from every flower and draws all good things towards you. I found these amazing and rare flowers this year; and couldn’t help but blog about them.

Here are 7 happy and rare flowers I met and photographed in 2017:

1. Commelina

Commelina flowers have a short life span and are, hence, called as dayflowers. They are less often referred to as widow’s tears. The colour of the flower is mostly blue, but lilac, lavender, yellow, peach, apricot and white also exist. The flowers are either bisexual or male.

2. Ceropegia Fantastica

In India, Ceropegia Fantastica can be seen in Goa, Karnataka, and Maharastra. I found it in Amboli, which lies in the Sindhudurg district of Maharashtra. The identifying feature of the plant is that its sepals are usually longer than a length of the flower.

3. Ceropegia Jainii

Ceropegia Jainii is a very rare and threatened herb, found in Maharashtra, India. Again, I saw it at a plateau in Amboli in August 2017. Flowering season is from August to October.

4. Habenaria Rariflora

It blooms in the months of August and September. The flowering starts after a good amount of rainfall is received. It is a terrestrial orchid living on rocks.

5. Lantana Flower

Lantana’s aromatic flower clusters are called umbels and are a mix of red, orange, yellow, or blue and white florets. They attract a lot of butterflies. Some experts claim that both ripe and unripe Lantana berries are poisonous; but other experts say that Lantana berries are edible when ripe, but slightly poisonous if eaten when they are still green.

6. Wild Lady Finger Flower

It is bright yellow or white in colour and belongs to the mallow family. The throat of the flower is maroon. It is related to the cotton, cocoa, and hibiscus species. It often grows to around 2 metres (6.6 ft) tall.

7. Tarpeta Flower

It is found in Europe, Asia, Australasia, Africa, and North America. The flowers are 1 to 2 cm (0.39 to 0.79 in) long. The stems vary from 50–300 cm (20–118 in) tall, with simple, opposite, triangular leaves.
