Printer-friendly version

One of nature's jewels that so many may never see. The largest flower in the world was blooming in Blanco, Veracruz , Mexico. Two meters (6 5/8 feet) high and weighing 75 kilos (165 1/3 lbs). It has the peculiarity of blooming only during three days every 40 years.  Since it may only be seen once or twice in a lifetime, shouldn't this qualify as the "8th Wonder of the World"?
 

Amorphophallus titanum (Araceae), also called "cadaverous flower" has the peculiarity of blooming only during three (3) days every 40 years.
