Blooming Now: Titan Corpse Flower

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

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!

The Conservatory’s specimen is growing very fast (about one foot overnight). The bloom is expected to open in about a week and will remain open for a few days. Daily updates will be shared here and on the Conservatory’s social media.

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