AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands: The wonders of nature will never cease to amaze. Take this gorgeous pair of red, luscious lips that belong to Psychotria elata, more commonly referred to as hot lips plant, hooker’s lips or (in Spanish) Flor de Labios.
Spotted in Amsterdam’s botanical garden, the hot lips plant is native to the tropical forests of Central and South America. The most kissable tree ever uses its bracts to lure pollinators including hummingbirds and butterflies. However, the time to kiss is very limited as blooms spread open quickly to unveil their beauty.
