Red faced gardeners have named and shamed the world’s rudest plants but how many are growing in your garden?
From hooker’s lips to the naked man orchid researchers from the online garden centre Gardeningexpress.co.uk have identified eight slightly offensive plants from across the globe. Whether it is a flower in the form of a naked man or a sexually-suggestive shrub, rude plants show that nature really does have a great sense of humour.
1. Hooker's lips
So-called because of its uncanny resemblance to a heavily made-up mouth wearing lipstick, It's a shrub native to rainforests and can grow over three metres tall.
