Winter Garden 2: Corpse Flower

Corpse flower

The Corpse Flower (amorphophallus titanum), which flowered earlier this year in the Auckland Domain Winter Garden.

These are the biggest flowers in the world, and the flower scent is said to be that of a corpse, which attracts pollinating insects to it.

Unfortunately, I could only visit it after it had faded a bit, however it remained very impressive!
