Germans flock to see 'unique' lily


The plant is known to botanists as Amorphophallus titanum but more familiarly as the corpse-flower because of its repulsive odour.

"Our example is the only one in the world to put out several flowers simultaneously," the garden exulted on its website.

The biggest opened Saturday, reaching a size of 2.59 metres (8.5 feet) but has now withered and had to be cut Monday, the garden said.

Of the two other buds, growing from a bulb weighing 120 kilogrammes (265 pounds), one has closed but the other has yet to blossom.
I wish I had one growing in my garden.


Have you had your habanero pepper today????
The hotter the pepper, the better the pepper!!!
