    I’ve seen the bat flower for sale in bulb catalogs. Would love to have one, but not here in Iowa.

    As a side note, please check your grammar! The possessive form of “it” is “its”. “It’s” means “It is”. ^_^

    Drosera capensis or Sundews do not belong on this list. For one, that is not the flower. I cultivate them and they do grow flowers, little purple ones that sprout from a vine, open for about a day then die and the next one will open the next day. For two its not rare. They grow wild in fields in Australia. It is beautiful though ;)

    we’ve seen the sundew while hiking in the salmonsdam reserve in south africa (located between swellendam and hermanus and off the beaten tourist path). you have to be careful not to step on them!

  23. Jade Vine Lover Says...

    On January 13, 2011 at 10:48 am

    It took me three years to track down a Jade Vine plant and now, after 10 years in my garden it is the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. It has taken over two palm trees and a large pergola. It is currently in full bloom (southern hemisphere). What I did not know is that the Cape Sundew (Drosera capensis) is a rare plant. I was given a few some years ago and they’ve multiplied over the years and I’ve been flinging them out by the hundreds!

    This flowers are amazing. I’v never seen it before accept “Rafflesia arnoldii”
    this too only in the books and magazine but there is also a flower called
    “Siroy Lilly” which is found only in Ukhrul district of Manipur, North East India
    This flower cannot grow anywhere in the world.

    There are more different kinds of rare flowers in remote areas like north east India boardering Myanmar, Nagaland, Manipur,Meghalaya, Arunanchal Pradesh, Assam and foot hills of south east Himalayans and near by. Next time I visit Assam (my homeland) I will definitely gather some information of those flowers and post for the flower crazy world…!!
