Dont give any of these to your Valentine...

1. Rafflesia Arnoldii:

This parasitic plant develops the world's largest bloom that can grow over three feet across. The flower is a fleshy color, with spots that make it look like a teenager's acne-ridden skin. It smells bad and has a hole in the center that holds six or seven quarts of water. The plant has no leaves, stems, or roots.

2. Hydnora Africana:

An unusual flesh-colored, parasitic flower that attacks the nearby roots of shrubby in arid deserts of South Africa. The putrid-smelling blossom attracts herds of carrion beetles.

3. Dracunculus Vulgaris:

The Dracunculus Vulgaris smells like rotting flesh and has a burgundy-colored, leaf-like flower that projects a slender, black appendage.

4. Amorphophallus:

Amorphophallus means, literally, 'shapeless penis.' The name comes from the shape of the erect black spadix.
