Amorphophallus titanum at The Huntington

The famous "Corpse Flower." Taken at about 5 p.m. on June 4, 2010, just after the flower came into full bloom. It was a relatively small bloom, at 3 ft. 9 in. The plant was propagated in 2002 from seed produced by an Amorphophallus titanum at the University of California, Santa Barbara, fertilized with pollen from The Huntington's own 2002 bloom.
