Blooming Now: Titan Corpse Flower

The Titan Corpse Flower started to bloom on Friday, July 10, releasing its signature stench. It began to close again and on Monday, July 13 the spike collapsed. Currently, a vegetative state Titan is visible in the Pacific Island Water Gardens. For those following along at home, the Live Stream is available below.

On Thursday, July 16 a non-blooming was put in the Pacific Island Water Gardens. Guests can now enjoy this unique plant during a different stage of its life cycle.

There’s a stinky surprise waiting for visitors at Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens: The Titan Corpse Flower (Amorphophallus titanum)!

This is an uncommon and special event since this species of corpse flower is endangered and individual plants can take several years before producing their first bloom, you don’t want to miss seeing it!

Daily updates will be shared here and on the Conservatory’s social media.

When visiting in person, the Titan Corpse Flowers can be found in the Pacific Island Water Garden with signage. Please remember to keep the distance between your party and others!
