NYBG's Corpse Flower (amorphophallus titanum) a horticultural jewel years in the making. Whenever this rare plant blooms, it causes a sensation. Maybe it's because it is known for having one of the largest inflorescences in the world, but more likely it's because of the putrid odor it releases during its brief 24- to 36-hour peak, like the smell of rotting flesh, the reason the plant is more popularly known as the corpse flower.
As of June 21, a new corpse flower is on display in the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory and set to bloom this month. We've created this limited edition unisex t-tshirt to commemorate this event. Available only at NYBG!
