Golden Gate Park is about to get smelly. This month, we’re keeping a close eye out on a soon to bloom Amorphophallus titanum, commonly known as the Corpse Flower.
Currently on display in our West Gallery, come visit for an early look, and watch this space for more updates. Follow us on Instagram and Facebook to be the first to know about the plant’s progress, from bloom to stink.
