Titan Arum Or Corpse Flower Blooms In D.C.

The U.S. Botanic Garden in Washington D.C. has become a real life "Little Shop of Horrors" showcasing a Titan Arum or a "corpse flower." While this plant won't actually suck your blood (that we know) the short 24- to 48-hour bloom releases an aroma that actually smells like death. It's no wonder that 20,000 people have gone to see it.
