It grew to a height of 7'4". It's claim to fame is the awful smell the blossom has - like a decomposing animal. Luckily it blooms very infrequently.
You can check it out at the Muttart Conservatory website.
There were huge lineups at the Muttart. So many people wanted to see this rare smelly plant and it only blooms for two days because it takes so much of the plant's energy to produce a blossom.
Mickey went with her son and two grandsons to see the plant. Her little grandson loves to have his picture taken (good thing, with a grandmother like Mickey ;)) so was pleased to have his picture taken with it.
