Rarest Flower: Kadupul – Sri Lanka

Kadupul Flower Sri Lanka

The Kadupul Flower found only in Sri Lanka is the most expensive and unique flower in the world. The reason for this is because the moment it is picked, it quite often dies. Due to its cactus roots, each and every Kadupul flower has an extremely short lifespan and is only able to survive the night, before it fades to nothing at dawn. It blooms on a monthly basis, only on full moon days! Do you think you will get lucky enough to see this?
