Watch the Corpse flower 1st Bloom LIVE

Flower fans and plant buffs are waiting at the Denver Botanic Gardens, 1007 York St, with bated breath in anticipation of the city’s first-ever bloom of a towering Amorphophallus titanum, also known as a “corpse flower,” after years of growth.

The flower, once in bloom, will release a powerful and pungent stench that gives the plant its unique nickname. The stench will last for up to 48 hours after the initial bloom, and the brave of nose will be lined up to catch a whiff.
