Our Finest Flowers (subtitled Celebrating Twenty Long Dreary Years of Obscure Stardom) is the nineteenth studio album by The Residents, released through Euro Ralph and East Side Digital on October 13th, 1992, in celebration of the group's 20th Anniversary.
Supposedly inspired by a proposed track list for a "greatest hits" album, which was destroyed when a Resident vomited on it, Our Finest Flowers features a selection of newly-recorded tracks, composed using elements of various songs from throughout the group's (then) twenty-year catalog. Due to this, The Residents internally refer to the album as The Frankenstein Album.

After being out of print for twenty-two years, the CD was reissued (with updated cover art) by MVD Audio in 2015; it is subsequently expected for release in a 31st Anniversary edition by Cherry Red Records and MVD for Record Store Day in 2023, as a newly remastered and pREServed limited vinyl LP. The vinyl edition is expected to release on April 22nd, 2023.
