A unique Amorphophallus titanum is set to bloom at the Missouri Botanical Garden. Commonly known as titan arum or the “corpse flower,” it is a large, fast-growing plant in the Aroid family.

Few of these plants exist in cultivation, and they bloom only rarely and under just the right conditions. Of the plants in cultivation, less than 160 flowerings have been documented in the world in nearly 120 years.
