Snail Flower

Featured in: Enchanted Flowers 02/Feb/2013

This flower is also know as the Corkscrew flower. The flower is purple in the middle when marture and white at the out side in the shape of a snail or corkscrew. When the flowers are young they are green and a soft white. The white is on the same flower. The flowers feel a bit like rubber. When the flowers dye they drop off and are a brown/yellow colour. This plant grows on a vine.

    Most unusual snail I’ve ever not seen. Are the white things to the right part of that flower which has faded or are they from another flower?

    Wonderfully captured Joy!! What a unusual flower it is ~ totally unknown to me!! I am wondering if it is a variety of orchid?

  • Thanks Sharon, I only know of one place which this is growing. Its climbing over a fence.
