As is the number of unusual plants.

Take, for example, the baseball plant...

We can see very clearly where this unusual looking plant gets its name from! These strange things can be found in South Africa and even though they thrive better out in the wild, many enjoy displaying them in their gardens and homes.

This plant is often referred to as "The Corpse Plant"...

Looking like something out of a sci-fi movie, this plant stands taller than a fully grown man and gives off an odor many would describe as similar to rotting flesh. Thankfully, this smelly old thing is local to Indonesia so us folk here in America don't have to worry about one sprouting in the backyard.

Moving on from the rotting flesh...

The stunning Dragon Blood Tree isn't exactly a suitable houseplant, but they look stunning in their natural habitat in Yemen.

The Sensitive Plant is a beautiful addition to any backyard...

And about the name? Well, they get their name from their shy nature. Reach out and touch one, or even just blow on it, and its leaves will close up as if startled or protecting themselves.

It's time to forget about the Venus Fly Trap...

The Flypaper Plant captures anything that lands on it with its sticky exterior... and they're beautifully colorful too!

But out of all of these strange and exotic plants...

One variety of flower has been trending recently for all of the right reasons.

Introducing...

The Galaxy Flower... or more scientifically known as the Night Sky Petunia.

These gorgeous looking flowers are the perfect addition to any garden...

Their deep purple coloring with white splashes give an outer-space illusion... hence the name.

These flowers thrive the most during the spring and summer seasons...

And they are native to many different parts of the world, with seeds being sold regularly online for keen gardeners.

But the biggest question being asked is...

What on earth has caused this flower's beautiful pattern?

Their coloring depends on the changing temperatures...

So the more sunlight they get, the more "sparkling stars" they will get on their petals.

Simply stunning.

This plant is best displayed in a hanging basket or in patio containers for an eye-catching display.
