Stinky flower in bloom
Flower fans can't wait to get a whiff at UCSB greenhouse
UC Santa Barbara’s rare corpse flower has begun to bloom. They named the plant Chanel and she is the most unusual plant in the greenhouse.
The 7-year-old plant is called Titan arum, or more commonly known as the corpse flower, because of its strong aroma.
The greenhouse will be open Wednesday from 9 a.m. to noon and from 5-8 p.m.
UCSB has a live webcam that takes a photo of the plant every five minutes http://www.eemb.ucsb.edu/ArumBloom/A.titanum.jpg
