The corpse flower (Amorphophallus titanum), also known as the stinky plant, bloomed August 2-5, 2016 at the U.S. Botanic Garden Conservatory. It was the first bloom of this particular plant, which was six years old. It takes quite a while to create enough energy for a bloom as spectacular as this one!
