the Corpse Flower...

stop and smell the…
no, you might want to think twice on that with this bloom!
The Corpse Flower blooms once about every 10-years
a bloom can grow up to 10-ft tall—this one is about 4-ft-8-in
the bloom lasts only 24-48 hours
and the smell lives up to the name—gag



this bloom has been dubbed Romero after the filmmaker George A. Romero who filmed the cult classic Night of the Living Dead here in Pittsburgh back in 1968
Romero stopped in to see his namesake bloom Romero

Night of the Living Dead
think I need to go stitch some zombies…

The Corpse Flower can be found at the Phipps Conservatory
