5 destinations to see beautiful flowers around the world


San Francisco Conservatory of Flowers - 100 John F Kennedy Drive, Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, California, USA

The San Francisco Conservatory of Flowers is home to more than 2,000 varieties of plants. In the East Wing are the aquatic plants, including giant Amazon Lilies. This is the place to see unusual and lovely flowers rarely seen elsewhere. Overhead in the conservatory can be seen the beautiful but deadly Nepenthes pitcher plants (like that pictured) which lure insects through a flower-like opening at the top of the flower, then dissolve them in digestive enzymes.
