The Most Kissable Plant

These gorgeous pair of red, luscious lips belong to a plant known as Psychotria elata, a small tree native to South American forests is commonly called the Hooker’s Lips plant after the unique shape.



It is a unique plant with uninteresting flowers but fabulous lip-like bracts. The plant can be difficult to grow and has very special cultivation conditions.




The kissable lips like part are just there to attract pollinators including butterflies and hummingbirds. They will be gone in no time. As soon as the flowers are ready to bloom, the red part will wear off.
