* In ''ComicBook/ToothAndClaw'' there are "mineral gardens" where plants made of stone and metal somehow grow. Their 'flowers' appear to be gemstones.

* ''WesternAnimation/DragonTales'' had dragonberries, which all of the characters loved eating. Also, Dragon Land is loaded with unusual plants in general-- the third season story "A Small Victory" features all of the main characters (and guest Lorca) searching for unusual flowers. The plants seen on the page picture are dande-lions, which can roar like real lions, but otherwise are basically just extremely large dandelions.

* In the ''Literature/InheritanceCycle'' by Christopher Paolini, a group of [[OurSpiritsAreDifferent spirits]] transform a lily into precious metals, including a golden stem, silver-wire hairs, white gold petals, and other flower organs carved from rubies. Eragon and Arya discover in short order that the metal flower is ''still alive'', and Arya hypothesizes that it is also fertile and capable of producing seeds that would grow into more golden lilies, though the latter is never confirmed.

* ''WesternAnimation/JoJosCircus'' has merryberries, which [=JoJo=] is [[PlotAllergy allergic]] to. Eating them causes her nose to swell and honk and her skin to turn pink and tingly. There's also the itchy ootchy scratch plants, which are basically a fast-acting fantastic flora version of poison ivy. When [[=JoJo=] and Skeebo fall into a patch of these, they start itching all over.

* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'', specifically the episode '[[Recap/GravityFallsS1E18TheLandBeforeSwine Land Before Swine]]', sees several characters end up in a cavern full of prehistoric life forms trapped in - and recently released from - amber. Soos examines one such life form (a group of pinkish flowers):
-->'''[happily]''' This little fella smells like battery acid!
-->'''[the plant releases a cloud of dull yellow vapor into Soos' face with a coughing sound; Soos cringes]'''
-->'''[equally happily]''' Looks like I lost my sense of smell. Ha ha ha!

* ''VideoGame/{{Subnautica}}'' contains copious quantities of this. A mushroom-like species that's full of caustic acid, kelp with seedpods that can be rendered down into silicone rubber, floating blue spheres held to the seafloor by netlike clusters of roots, bulb-shaped trees containing isolated mini-biomes that are stated to die off if the plant is pierced, ghostly white reeds whose roots grow pustules that are filled with a blood-colored, benzene-containing fluid, and many other equally unusual examples populate the world of 4546B. [[GlowingFlora And all bioluminescent, including the potatoes.]]
* ''VideoGame/WakingMars'' is basically this trope: The Game. You as the player character grow and study increasingly unusual plant species in Lethe Cavern below the surface of Mars, though as your AI companion is quick to remind you, they're technically not plants.

* Almost everything living below the surface and uppermost layers of the cavern in ''Mang/MadeInAbyss''. The Eternal Fortunes are a mild example, since they're normal-looking flowers whose only fantastic characteristic is being able to survive extreme environments. Further down, there are trees shaped like umbrellas pointed toward the center of the Abyss, and enormous "goblets" made from two different organisms living in a symbiotic relationship. The latter can be dangerous, as they fill with acid when young.
