Shenzhen Nongke Orchid for $177,000
The Shenzhen Nongke Orchid is a very impressive looking flower that will captivate your guests – if they happen to catch it in bloom. The rare orchid only blooms once every four to five years. Scientists spent about eight years developing the gorgeous flower and named it after the university that developed it. It sold at an auction in 2005 for the price tag noted and could likely be yours for the same amount. This makes a great conversation piece as well as a beautiful addition to your landscaping.
