Flower

Visitors look at a blooming Titan Arum (Amorphophallus titanum), one of the world's largest and rare tropical flowering plants, at Basel's Botanical Garden September 29, 2014. The flower, which emits strong odour likened to rotting meat, which gives it it's common name 'corpse flower', wilts and dies after two days. Both the 'fragance' and the flower's meat-colouration attract pollinators - carrion flies and beetles.
