Flowers are one of the most beautiful creations of God, and their beauty mesmerizes anyone who beholds them. You may have bought flowers for yourself or someone else before, but would you be willing to spend millions of euros on a single stem? It sounds unbelievable, but there are such incredibly expensive flowers in the world. We will get acquainted with the world’s most expensive flowers in the following.
1- Kadupul Flower: No price
The “Queen of the Night” is a stunning yellow and white cactus flower that blooms rarely and only at night. Unfortunately, its lifespan is very brief, and its flowers begin to fade before dawn. It is impossible to assign a value to this flower due to its short lifespan. This cactus is indigenous to southern Mexico and South America, and its flowers cannot be harvested as they wither immediately upon contact.
2- Rothschild Slipper Orchid / Gold of Kinabalu Orchid: 4 thousand euros
This rare and endangered orchid species takes 15 years to grow and bloom. This orchid, only found in the Kinabalu National Park in Malaysia, grows on Mount Kinabalu at an altitude of 500 to 1,200 meters. Due to its rarity, each stem of this flower is sold on the black market for around 4,000 euros.
3- Rose Juliet (Juliet Rose): 2.3 million euros
This expensive flower is the most expensive rose ever produced in the world. It takes 15 years for its creator, David Austin, to breed it, costing around 2.6 million euros. The flower was first showcased at the Chelsea Flower Show in 2006.
4- Shenzhen Nongke Orchid: 160 thousand euros
This hand-crafted orchid is named after Shenzhen Nongke University, where Chinese agricultural scientists produced it. This rare flower blooms only once every 4 to 5 years. It was auctioned off for about 160,000 euros.
5- Saffron flower (Saffron Crocus): 9,500 euros
This flower is truly a sight with its purple petals and orange flags. Saffron, which humans cultivate, is mostly known as a spice, but after the emergence of this flower, it takes about 80,000 saffron flowers to produce only 500 grams of saffron.
6- Gardenia: between 15 and 45 euros
Although not as expensive as other flowers on this list, the white and beautiful head of the gardenia flower makes it a suitable choice for a bridal bouquet. However, gardenia flowers cannot be purchased as stems, and only the entire plant is sold, which makes it more expensive than most other flowers.
