Archie, the St. Louis corpse flower

One of two corpse flowers making a big stink at UMSL

One of the corpse flowers at University of Missouri St. Louis is ready to bloom. The big stinker.

We really enjoyed chatting with horticulturalist Kathy Upton on Saturday. She nose her stuff and answered lots of questions about this unusual plant. But she only had 15 visitors yesterday afternoon. Makes no scents.

The UMSL greenhouse is open Sunday from 10am – 5pm. It’s free and involves flowers, so perfect for Mother’s Day. You’re welcome.
