The rarest wild flower in the world
October 6, 2001 9:30 PM   Subscribe

The rarest wild flower in the world is the Australian white waratah. Only a single wild specimen is known and its location is kept secret. Commercial versions have been cloned from the lone wild plant, and its cultivation is becoming quite popular.

Sure, it's all "quite popular" until the vicious cloned waratah attacks and kills innocent humans. Then they break out the guns, "clean up," and try to pretend it never existed... I've seen it happen.
