Layers of green petals arranged beautifully and consistently one on top of the other, as if trying to hold, cover and protect the pistil from the external environment.
This picture was taken in the garden of Tourist Rest House of (KMVN) Kumaon Mandal Vikas Nagam in Ranikhet, India. The exact name of this flower is not known to us. It was for the first time we had seen a green flower with hard petals. So we decided to name it the Green Flower. Not sure if it is a cactus of any form because the climate of Ranikhet is pleasant with sunshine, rainfall, and snow in winters.
