Another post for the flower detectives ;)

Post by ekipero » Tue Oct 11, 2005 1:52 pm

Hi all,

I've got another case for all you "Flower detectives" out there hehe.
Saw these in someone's garden as I was walking down the street but I was in quite a rush and couldn't stop for more than a few secs to take a pic with the phone camera.
I hope the pics are enough to help you identify them, they are probably the weirdest flowers I've seen in my life, not only because of the color and shape but because of those really strange growths on the top?!?!

Anyone who can help me with this will have my eternal gratitude!
Thanks to all :)

Looks like we have some really good flower detectives here at biology online.
We should have an advert on google: "Flower identification service! Only 0.99$ a flower!" No? Just a suggestion, you don't have to shout... :lol:

Good idea...we can do that at a lower price like 0.25$ per detected flower :wink:

Ok, but the administration team gets 15% of the income. Rest goes to the detective. Agreed?
