I’m married to a horticulturist so I’ve seen many a flower in my day, but this one at the Naples Botanical Garden was too amazing for words. It’s called a Giant Dutchman’s Pipe from Panama.

A few years ago, we traveled to Panama and drove the entire country, but we never came across this. I imagine we would remember because this flower is hard to forget.
