World's Most Unusual Plants

Divine Caroline blog has a neat post by Midori Nakamura on the world's most unusual plants (and yes, the "shapeless penis" plant made the list!)

This one is Hydnora africana:

Hydnora africana, an unusual flesh-colored, parasitic flower that attacks the nearby roots of shrubby in arid deserts of South Africa. The putrid-smelling blossom attracts herds of carrion beetles. - via Miss Cellania (Photo: Martin Heigan [Flickr])
