Giant stinky Corpse Flower, blossoming: animated GIF timelapse


The Huntington, a wonderful destination here in Los Angeles, has posted GIFs of the rare Corpse Flower blossoming.

If you're in Southern California, you gotta see it in person. The plant's latin name, Amorphophallus titanum comes from Ancient Greek amorphos, "without form, misshapen" + phallos, "phallus", and titan, "giant."
