Not all things that look beautiful smell that way. The smelliest flower in New York is currently blooming and it stinks.
Feel Good Mornings With Dave Fields Mon-Fri 6am-10am
Morty Jr. the Corpse Plant is currently starting to bloom at the Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens and it smells.
The corpse plant is the unofficial name of the Titan Arum plant. It has the largest unbranched inflorescence in the world and it gets its name "corpse plant" because when it blooms it smells like a rotting corpse.
Corpse flowers can bloom every 6-10 years, making it a rare sight to see and smell! When it blooms, the flower and stench will only last 36-48 hours
Due to the Bloom, The Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens have extended hours for you to see and sniff everything that Morty Jr. has to offer.
According to the Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Garden's website, you only have 36-48 hours to get the smell after the plant starts to bloom, so if you want to go you need to stop by tonight before 9 pm.
Morty Jr. is the offspring of one of the original corpse plants that were brought to Buffalo at the botanical gardens in 2014.
You can get your tickets to see and smell Morty Jr. HERE.
