Titan Arum, the largest known unbranched inflorescence in the world, is in bloom
- jccarp, CNN iReport producer
The Titan Arum is the largest known unbranched inflorescence in the world and is in bloom at the Botanical Gardens in DC today. The time between flowering can take years to decades and the bloom only lasts for 24-48 hours. It is know as the corpse flower as it smells like rotting flesh. Pretty awesome to see it in person!
