Titan Arum (amorphophallus titanum) About to Bloom in Laconia, NH
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
at Lakeport Fire Station in Laconia NH
AUGUST 19th - August 27th 2006
