The Worlds Most Expensive Flowers…

Fancy going that little bit further for that special person? Here is a list of the top 5 most expensive flowers around!

Saffron Crocus - £600 per pound. Despite the Crocus being a fairly average priced flower, this particular variety is far from cheap. Hence the name, the Saffron Crocus makes the Saffron spice, the most expensive spice in the world, costing £600 per pound!

Bouquet consisting of white orchids, white lilies, moonflowers and the root of a 100 year old ficus. £80,000. As well as including luxurious flowers and antique ficus root, this bouquet also contains 90 two-carat red ruby facets, nine one-carat diamonds, and a 21.6-carat star ruby! This stunning pricey bouquet is available to view in the Ruby Plaza, Vietnam.

Gold of Kinabalu Orchid - £3,000 per stem. The endangered species of Orchid, only blooming in April-May, is found only in a specific cornered off area in a Malaysian National Park, making it an extremely rare and pricey flower!

Shenzhen Nongke Orchid - £160,000. This is a man-made Orchid from China, taking 8 years to perfect the variety. It was auctioned at £160,000 in 2005, making it the most expensive flower ever bought.

Kadupul Flower – Priceless! This gorgeous flower tops the lot. It holds a priceless beauty and lasting for only a few hours, even the natives of Sri Lanka rarely have the pleasure to view its beauty. Its short life span gives it an almost magical quality as its divine beauty perishes within hours due to its rare and fragile state.
