Corpse Flower Blooming

Hold your nose.

The infamous giant stinky flower is beginning to unleash its rotten stench at the Huntington Library in San Marino. Library spokeswoman Susan Turner-Lowe says the freakish-looking Amorphophallus titanum, known to Indonesians as the “corpse flower,” is beginning to bloom, and beginning to smell. Turner-Lowe says it will take several hours to fully unfurl and exude a perfume that only carrion-eating beetles love.
