These plants are the smaller relatives of the large and stinky Corpse Flower (Amorphophallus titanum) that bloomed here at the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory in June of 2011.
Don't be fooled by their comparatively small size---these plants have a very potent smell when the inflorescence is open. You must get fairly close to the inflorescence to get the full effect of the smell.
This plant has three blooms and there is a hope that at least one of them will last through the end of September. This plant is located in the back corner of the North Garden. Enjoy!!
