They're Just So Kissable Looking: Hooker's Lips Flower

January 14, 2013


This is a shot of a flower from Psychotria elata, a small understory tree in tropical forests whose flowers are affectionately known as hooker's lips. Get it? Because they look like bright red lipsticked lips. Just think -- now you can plant a seed and grow your own girlfriend to kiss! You know, instead of having to blow her up like you normally do. Hoho, BURN. I'm projecting.

Thanks to Laura, who heard this is how Poison Ivy tried to get her first kiss because she was really shy growing up.
