Titan Arum (amorphophallus titanum) About to Bloom in Laconia, NH

ginger_nh(z4 NH)August 19, 2006

If you live in New England, here is your chance to see the corpse flower unfold; I just came back from a visit --no lines right now; it is set up in our local fire station. The immense plant has been raised by a hobby botanist/oral surgeon in our town. Should be in flower tomorrow evening or Monday.

Laconia is best known for Motorcycle Week -- this is something truly different! Come one, come all. The $10.00 entrance charge will be used to support Lakes Region General Hospital Healthcare Dental Resource Center and the charitable efforts of the Laconia Kiwanis Club. Truly a "homegrown" event:

Laconia Kiwanis Club in partnership with LRGHealthcare

Rare Corpse Flower Bloom

Moving this message down. The titan arum "Tilly" bloomed yesterday and was quite amazing. About 20 turkey vultures were circling over the firestaion at the height of the scent release - even they were fooled by the corpse flower!
