Giant ‘corpse flower’ blooms in Germany – Yahoo! News

Giant ‘corpse flower’ blooms in Germany – Yahoo! News: “BERLIN (Reuters) – The world’s tallest — and smelliest — flower has bloomed, reaching a height of 2.94 meters, 18 centimeters more than the previous record for the species, the Stuttgart botanical garden said on Friday.

The Titan Arum, or Amorphophallus Titanum, nicknamed “corpse flower” because of its putrid stench, blooms rarely and briefly.”

I rarely run across science news items that spark ideas for the Zook Terpin series, but this sure qualifies.
