The ability for the mind to subconsciously pervert things has never ceased to astound me. However, in this case I’m not sure if we Mother Nature has a sick mind or if it’s us.
Gardening Express has just released what they believe to be the eight rudest plants on earth.
They sound like something that could be straight out of PornHub, but hookers lips, naked man and Peter’s pepper are actually plants!
A spokesman for Gardening Express said: “We know there is a time and a place for everything, but we just could not help ourselves when finding some plants on the cruder side of life.”
“But this list is not just about having a laugh, it really shows how wonderful plants can be.From one little seed, a plant can grow to create a detailed flower that just so happens to perfectly show something quite rude. We certainly had fun compiling the list.”
Check out the saucy botany below:
1) Hookers Lips
These gorgeous pair of red, luscious lips belong to a plant known as Psychotria elata. Affectionately, this plant is called Hooker’s Lips or the Hot Lips Plant.
2) Sausage Tree
Dangling in clusters from long, pendulous stems, each thick-skinned fruit can grow up to three feet in length. While the unripe fruit is poisonous to humans, cooked sausage tree fruit is a common ingredient used in making traditional African beer.
3) Peter’s Pepper
The peter pepper is an heirloom chilli pepper known for it’s unusual phallic shape. Despite its giggle-worthy appearance, it is a fairly hot pepper, reaching up to 30,000 Scoville Heat Units.
4) Naked Man Orchid
Orchis italica, more commonly called the Naked Man Orchid or the Italian Orchid, grows in various locations throughout the Mediterranean., resembling a cute and very naked purple man wearing a hat.
5) Angel Orchid
It may sound sweet and innocent, but one looks at this plant shows it’s anything but. The orchid, native to Southern India, closely resembles a cloaked woman with huge breasts.
6) Clitoria Ternatea
This pretty plant and its flowers, also known as the butterfly pea, very closely resembles, something a little bit saucy. If you don’t quite see it, take another look at the name.
7) Carrion flower
Also known as corpse flowers or stinking flowers, the Carrion Flower emits an odour that smells like rotting flesh. Not only that but they look a little bit naughty too.
While these flowers look stunning in full bloom, a few weeks before the flowers are out in full force, it has to be said that the pendulous tube looks like a certain part of the male anatomy.
Who would have thought that plants could be so sexy? Maybe now you will feel inspired to get outside and do some gardening.
