Corpse Flower ready to bloom at Darmouth College

Sean MurphyComment

This flower smells like a cross between a decaying animal and urine is set to bloom later this week at Dartmouth College.

Named Morphy, the titan arum — or corpse flower — hasn’t bloomed since 2011. Officials at Dartmouth’s Life Sciences Greenhouse, where the 6 ½-foot flower is housed, estimate it should bloom as early as Thursday. Crowds have already been filing through the greenhouse, including nearly 175 on Sunday for a special viewing of the flower that is growing about 4 inches a day in anticipation of its big moment.
