The most expensive flowers in the world

This orchid flowers only blooms once every 4 to 5 years and takes its name from the university at which it was developed. Scientists spent 8 years creating the delicate bloom which fetched a staggering £160,000 at auction in 2005. It remains the most expensive flower ever sold.
