Corpse Flower

My son and I went to Frederick Meijer Gardens to see the Corpse Flower. It was planted as a seed 18 years ago and blooms approximately every ten years. How intriguing! The line was long to get in and took us 1.5 hours to finally see it! The name of the flower comes from it’s “corpse” like smell! It really does smell pretty bad! After seeing it we took a stroll through the rest of the gardens and enjoyed the outdoor area. What a great day with my son!
