Happy Alien Flower

Sorry to disappoint you but no, little green men did not plant this flower. It is a strange-looking perennial plant that comes from South America. Besides Happy Alien flower, it is also known as Darwin’s slipping flower and was first discovered by Charles Darwin between 1831 and 1836. The flower looks like a happy alien that is holding a white tray. The plant blooms in the summer and has a combination of orange and yellow flowers. Its odd shape attracts small birds like hummingbirds who enjoy eating the white and lip-like part of the flower. While the birds are feeding the pollen from the flower’s upper part gets on their bodies and this helps pollination.

  1. Oh my God, it does look like a little alien. But I do not think it is holding a tray, I think it is sticking out its tongue… I hope Carol DM takes a look at this post… She will be jealous and will want one of these for herself…
