    lilac and yellow primroses (both which smell like heaven and last all of two days in tejas)

    Hymenocallis littoralis, the Spider Lily (Mexico)

    Passiflora coerulea, the blue passion flower (Eastern USA)
    One of the only specie of passion vine able to thrive under a temperate climate. The fruits are edible, but tasteless.


    orchids too
    Calliandra emarginata (Mexico), the Powder puff.
    It could also be an Archidendron grandiflorum (Australia -almost the same family as the previous [Mimosoideae]), but it's rather unlikely.

    The corpse flower...

    The titan arum or Amorphophallus titanum (from Ancient Greek amorphos, "without form, misshapen" + phallos, "penis", and titan, "giant")



    It's huge. It's scientific name means giant misshapen penis. It smells like rotten meat and blooms like once a year at most. What's not to love?

    Jasminum sambac (India), the Arabian Jasmine

    Despite what the name of the link seems to suggest, this plant is not a Calla, but a Zantedeschia aethiopica (South Africa).

    Bauhinia variegata (S-E Asia), the Orchid tree (although genetically, it's not related to orchids at all).

    One day, you'll grow out of adolescence, you'll see. :rolli:

    Even ENTPs can do it.

    But the inflorescence of the Titan Arum is not that awful. You have to get close to it to actually smell something.

    Its only contestant, however, is far more repulsive (both in shape, colour, and texture). It's the Rafflesia arnoldii, which happens to grow in the same ecosystem (equatorial rainforests of Sumatra and Borneo).



    This flower is pretty rare in the wild, and unknown in cultivation (it's a parasite). But believe me, you can detect its presence way before you see it. The stench is so powerful it can attract flies miles and miles away.

    ---

    But the most awful odour comes from one of the largest known orchids, the Bulbophyllum beccarii, which uses the same trick than our Rafflesia and Arum. Coincidentally (or not), this plant also originates from the jungles of Sumatra and Borneo.
    Orchids are more sophisticated and complex than any other family of plants. When they do something, they do it very well. So when one of them wants to smell like a corpse, it's doing it very effectively. The stench of these flowers has been compared to "a herd of dead elephants", and even human noses can detect it one hundred meters away.



    So Ladies, if your loving one says he wants to offer you orchids, beware. If it's a spike of B. beccarii, I'm not sure how you should interpret the message, maybe a call to personal hygiene?
