An Amorphophallus just in time for Valentines Day?

2/10/2010

New York Botaincal gArden blooming corpse flower siberian giant amorphophallus

Could it be so well timed?  The New York Botanical Garden uploaded this picture on Flickr yesterday.  I am wondering…is it recent?  It is a corpse flower (so called for it’s smell), latin name is Amorphophallus gigas (Giant Sumatrian Amorphophallus).  (I love it when Latin sounds a little naughty) Is their’s about to bloom? (a rare occurrence).  How apropos, just in time for valentines day.  If you live nearby, it would be worth checking out….
