Terrifying Plants That Will Put You In The Halloween Mood

We’ve spoken at length in past blog posts about the benefits of displaying traditional floral displays have on emotional wellbeing, and why you should choose us as your suppliers of corporate flowers in London. However, there are more sinister-looking buds out there that we think are somewhat fascinating.

Although we don’t recommend you trying to get your hands on these flowers outside of Halloween season (if at all) these are some of the ones we think are going to give you and any suspecting visitors a fright!

Corpse Flower (Amorphophallus Titanum)

As the name suggests, this plant is pretty darn scary. Although usually attributed the title of World’s Largest Flower, it is in fact made up of thousands of smaller ones.

It was actually given its nickname because of the rotting flesh aroma it gives off in order to attract pollination from creepy crawlies.

All in all, this is a pretty disgusting plant. We also don’t recommend you purchasing one just for Halloween – with them reaching heights of 10ft, they’re not particularly interior friendly!

Doll’s Eye (Actaea Pachypoda)

Native to north east America, this poisonous plant is not particularly good looking. The white berries that hang from the red stalk make it resemble eyeballs hanging, hence the informal title of ‘Doll’s Eye Plant’.

Bleeding Tooth Fungus (Hydnellum Peckii)

This unappetising fungus looks like someone has spat out a piece of chewing gum and then bled all over it. Luckily it’s inedible so you’re unlikely to come across it unless you explore tree roots in North America.

When moist and healthy, this forest native bleeds red droplets that are enough to make Superman himself run for the hills!

Black Bat Flower (Tacca chantrieri)

This black flower makes for an especially creepy Halloween-themed plant. Resembling a bat, it has ears and whiskers that we find to be unnecessarily scary.

Being native to China and requiring a vast amount of care despite living in the wild, it’s unlikely you’re going to come across this plant on your next trip to the park (thank goodness!)

So there you have it, some creepy flowers for tomorrow’s scary festivities. However, if you’re looking for something that’s a bit more soothing for your business why not look to Jungle World to supply you with corporate flowers in London?
