Titan Arum, Corpse Flower
Some facts about this flower:
Height of inflorescence: Over 3 metres (10 ft.)
Amorphophallus titanum is the largest flower in the world. The fully open inflorescence emits a repulsive, "rotting-fish-with-burnt-sugar" scent. This odor, which is strongest at night, is used to attract pollinators. The plant regularly produces a single, giant, umbrella-like leaf. The tuber then enters a dormant period of 4 months before producing another one.
