Kadapul flower: priceless
The kadapul flower is technically a cactus. The kadapul flower is located and found only in the regions of Sri Lanka. It is without a doubt the most expensive flower ever to exist, why? It is priceless as this flower is unbelievably rare and the stunning white flower blossoms at night and survives merely for a few hours, making it impossible to catch a glimpse of it. Unlike other rare flowers with expensive price tags, this near-mythical species has never been up for sale.
Juliet rose: £10 million
The bloom of this flower is sporadic in the modern world. Today it fetches an extravagant price tag of £10 million. Back in the year of 2006, one grower sold his bloom of julliet rose for a jaw-dropping $15.8 million after harvesting it for over 15 years.
Shenzhen Nongke Orchid: £160,000
The orchid flowers tend to bloom only once in every four to five years. It takes its name from the university at which it was created. Scientists have spent over eight years formulating the delicate bloom and ended up fetching a staggering £160,000 at an auction in 2005.
Orchids, lilies, moonflowers, and a 100-year-old ficus: £80,000
It might seem like an awkward combination, these flowers together once commanded a combined value of £80,000 when arranged in a single ceremonial bouquet. Along with the root of a 100-year-old ficus which was surrounded by beautiful white flowers, the said bouquet contained 90 2 carat ruby facets, 9 one carat diamonds and 21.6-carat star ruby.
Gold of Kinabalu orchid: £3,800
Since the gold of Kinabalu is considered endangered, the orchid can be observed in a fenced off area of the Kinabalu national park in Malaysia. This orchid can take over 15 years to flower owing as to why it fetches its £3,800 price tag. It is currently claimed to be on the verge of extinction, as a result, could end up pushing its prices higher.
In the early 17th century of Holland, tulips had become extremely wealthy and fashionable which resulted in rich Dutch flower lovers going crazy over them. Prices soared extremely high during that period and resulted in steep price tags for them.
Saffron crocus: £760-950 per pound
Often framed as being more valuable than gold, the bright red stigma of the saffron crocus is separated and removed which is then used as a spice in different cuisines across the globe and giving the flowering plant a tremendous value.
