ZOOM Program: The Famous Corpse Flower

March 11, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

The Famous Corpse Flower or What’s that foul smell in the Tropical House?
Known to have the world’s largest “flower” (unbranched inflorescence to be precise), the titan arum (Amorphophallus titanum) is a star attraction in our Tropical House collection, especially when in bloom with a structure that can reach over 3 meters (10 ft) high! Join Garden Director Emeritus Paul Licht for a literal inside look into this incredible plant whose famous flower stink gives it the nickname corpse flower. We’ll discuss its native habitat, interesting life cycle, and when a bloom might be expected. We’ll also learn about other fascinating relatives in the arum family growing in the Garden. This program is part of our 24-hour BIG GIVE fundraising campaign to refurbish our Tropical House interior. If you love the Corpse Flower and the Tropical House, visit our website to learn more and join our efforts!

  FREE Donations welcome!
