Amongst the countless natural beauties that we know of, flowers are one that truly stand out. The perfect gift for loved ones; flowers have forever been a part of all sorts of celebrations and occasions. Be it birthdays, anniversaries or Valentine’s Day, flowers are the best means of adding a bit more to the ‘special’ aspect of the day.
The thing with flowers is that these have the potential to touch our hearts, and make one feel really special – as if they are all that matter to us. For this reason, these are also used by wedding companies in Dubai for decoration purposes. Although a majority of flowers can be acquired rather cheap, there are people out there who would go to the extent of purchasing some of the rarest, prettiest flowers that are known to mankind. For those who have not heard of flowers that cost millions – yes MILLIONS – of dollars, make sure that you go through our list of the most expensive flowers in the world given below:
Lisianthus – ($10 – $35 per bundle)
The scientific name for this flower is Eustoma Grandiflorum, and its price can range anywhere between $10 and $35 a bundle. The flower is believed to attain a maximum height of about 60 cm, and its width is nearly 5 cm. It owes its lasting beauty to its beautifully ruffled, wide, and intensely elegant oval petals. It can be acquired in a number of colours. If you are wonder why it costs so much, well, it is because of its short life span upon being cut from its stem – a mere three weeks.
Gold of Kinabalu Orchid ($6000 per piece)
Available for about $6,000 per piece, this is yet another expensive flower, but what makes it so expensive is the fact that it is very rare – rare to the point that it can only be found in the Kinabalu National Park in Malaysia. What’s more is that growing this flower takes up a whole lot of time, and can be rather difficult too. Believe it or not, its bloom can take nearly 15 years, and it grows between the months of April and May.
Saffron Crocus ($1200 – $1500 per pound)
This particular flower has gained popularity for being a spice as compared to being a bloom. However, it continues to be sold as a flower these days. The flower is purple in colour, but what truly makes it unique is that of its yellow stamen. The price of this particular flower reflects just how costly its development is and that is why you can’t expect this flowers delivery in Dubai. This is because in order to acquire 500 grams of spice, nearly 80, 000 flowers need to be picked by the hand and dried.
Kadupulu Flower (priceless)
Native to Sri Lanka, this beautiful flower is one that cannot be purchased – it is priceless. Why is that so? Well, for the simple reason that this astonishing beauty is extremely fragile, and has a very short lifespan. Moreover, it cannot be picked without being damaged. It is known to blossom around midnight, emanates an intensely sweet, and dies before dawn – hence having the ‘priceless’ price tag attached with it.
