Not one, not two, but three stinky corpse flowers will bloom in Washington Garden


The botanical garden at the U.S. Capitol is expected to smell a lot worse here pretty soon.

A trio of corpse flowers are due to bloom, releasing an odor that has been described as that of rotting flesh. The actual name of the flower is the titan arum, and if all three flowers do bloom, it would be the first time that so many of these flowers have bloomed so close together at a North American institution, reports Reuters.

The largest of the three flowers stands at just about 7 feet and could open anywhere between Thursday and Tuesday. The garden will be open until 10 p.m. once the flower blooms and (somehow) starts attracting crowds.
