Here are photographs of some more unusual plant species.

The flowers were photographed at the new National Botanic Garden of Wales in Carmarthenshire, Wales,UK. The £50 million garden was the first new Garden to open in the third millennium (5th May 2000). It is over 600 acres in extent, with some 200 acres of formal areas.It boasts a 100m long great Glasshouse designed by the Architect Lord Foster (Norman Foster) and the only double-walled Garden in the United Kingdom.
