Flowers sure are purty...even turd blossoms!

With a new year coming, it's time to turn over a new leaf here at Ultra-Gross. Why write about disgusting things all the time? So let's talk about flowers!

I always thought that the worst name for a flower was the strangleweed. That’s the nickname for a flowering vine also known as the devils-guts, witch's shoelaces, and dodder

But I had forgotten about the turd blossom!

In Texas, a turd blossom is ANY flower that grows in a pile of poop. Usually cow poop.

Fun Fact: Turd Blossom is also the nickname that former President George W. Bush gave to his advisor, Karl Rove.
