Rare “Corpse Flower” Blooms at Kansas State University

June 28, 2017 - 11:39 am

After more than 15 years of greenhouse growth, a “corpse flower” – a tree-like flowering plant that produces one of the largest blooms in the world – has bloomed at Kansas State University.

Growth parameters were indicating the flower might bloom over the weekend. When that didn’t happen, Kansas State University assistant professor of landscape horticulture, Chad Miller, says there was concern that the flower might not fully open.
