SWITZERLAND-FLOWER-FEATURE

Visitors take photographs of the Arum Titan 'Amorphophallus titanum', the largest flower in the world, as it blossoms for a second time on late November 19, 2012 at the Botanical Garden in Basel. The flower has a 2.27 meters high yellow pistil and a red-brown petal-shaped funnel. Its tuber weighs more than 30 pounds. Botanical Garden's experts are surprised by the second blossoming, less than 20 months. Many curious are awaited to observe the short-term phenomenon despite the smell of rotting meat generated by the plant.
