bleeding tooth fungusI'm not much of a plant person. I love how they look and hate artificial ones, so I attempt to keep a couple alive in my home, but beyond that, it's all up to our yard care service.

While I love the thought of tending to rose bushes and grooming a garden, the fact is I think it would be mind-numbingly boring. I mean plants are pretty, but they're not all that entertaining ... or so I thought. Then I read about one that actually eats sheep and, upon further digging, found there are a host of truly freaky plants growing among us. Plants that I don't necessarily want to grow myself, but they do up their species' excitement credibility. Here are five of the freakiest plants you've ever seen.

What's the freakiest plant you've ever seen?
