The Star Flower
The star flower comprises approximately 40 species, almost all of which can be found stinking up the terrains of South Africa. With a hirsute, flesh-colored appearance, many liken the flower to rotting meat. In that light, then, its nickname of “carrion flower” makes complete sense.
This foul specimen of flower can be found in none other than the Australian Outback, where it uses its strawberry-colored, anemone-shaped appearance and floral funk to entice blowflies over for a pollinating visit.
