As the flower blooms further and the outer petals open up, the inner, white parts, often called the ‘lady in a bath’ become more visible. This plant is found in Siberia, northern China, Korea and Japan. 9. Parrot Flower: The Impatiens Psittacina is an amazing plant of the balsam family. The flowers are purple and carmine red in colour.

This rare plant is found in Thailand, Burma And parts of India. 8.

This is a rare species of orchids which is found to grow in the cloud forests of south-eastern parts of Ecuador and Peru.
