Amorphophallus titanum "Amorphophallus titanum"
- The first bloom of one of our Amorphophallus titanum plants. This plant is about 10 years old. Amorphophallus titanum produces the largest inflorescence of any plant in the world. The blooms can reach eight ft. tall and will last only a few days. They have a very distinct scent of rotting flesh but the flower is very beautiful and delicate. Titanum has only bloomed a handful of times in the United States in the last century. This photo was taken on August 17th.2007
