Why people have such an obsession for a plant that isn't very pretty, and smells like s rotting corpse, I will never know, but they do. So get ready for all the hype, because another corpse flower is about to bloom in Colorado.
Another one of the Denver Botanic Gardens’ corpse flowers is expected to bloom in early to mid-September.
The last time this phenomenon hit our state in August 2016, another plant, Little Stinker, made its debut. But despite all the hype and hours-long waits, that flower didn’t stink enough, and visitors complained.
Scientists say this plant, Stinky, will likely outperform Little Stinker, as its girth already bests its earlier-blooming predecessor.
The Botanic Gardens will be open for regular hours during the bloom, from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. On bloom day, members can turn up an hour early to get the first smells.
