Beautiful and Redolent Flowers: Bloom 12

This is an unusual though not uncommon garden flower. Its shape resembles that of an impractical but very chic cocoon chair, and the color a lipstick shade of glossy coral. The white stick in the middle brings to mind the image of a big maggot. In other words, this is an exotic and flamboyant flower that just happens to make one think of a maggot sitting in business class.
