Amorphophallus titanum

For the first time ever three blooming giant arums in Ghent’s botanical garden.

Amorphophallus titanum, commonly known as the Titan arum or the Corpse flower, is a fascinating and rare flowering plant native to the rainforests of Sumatra, Indonesia. It is famous for producing the largest unbranched inflorescence in the world and emits a foul odor that resembles rotting flesh when it blooms, giving it the name “Corpse flower.”
