There are more than 270,000 species of flowers in existence and an even bigger number of subspecies. While most flowers are indeed pretty, there are flowers out there who aren’t necessarily known for their looks nor for their smell. Some flowers require specific climatic conditions to bloom, conditions that when not met, will force these particular flowers to either not bloom that that year or to die altogether. Such is the case with the flowers we will soon talk about, flowers that because of their sensibilities, have almost gone extinct. Let us then find out what are the ten rarest flowers in the world and where can they be found.
This particular flower is native to the tropical forests of the Philippines where they only bloom from time to time.

When fully grown, this flower can reach up to three meters in length while its colors can vary from blue-green to bright mint green in extreme cases.
