If you look up flowers that start with the letter U on Google, you won't find any except for one that called "umbrella plant". Well, I don't exactly know what umbrella plant looks like as the images on the web are very varies. So, feature in this post, I recycled my old photos of unique and unusual plants.
I spotted these unusual and unique living things at our local Conservatory a couple of years back. I imagine those buds turned into beautiful flowers though I have not seen them. There was no name tag for these plants when I checked.
There was a name for this pokey leaf, also found at the Conservatory, but I just can't remember. The leaf was covered with little spikes and had the feel of spiky thorns, but when touched, they were neither. They were soft as the matter fact. I will have to learn the name at the next time of my visit.
