Rare plant flowering in Canada

A rare natural occurrence has taken place in Canada, and it is peaking the interest of many naturalists.

A flower known as the Titan Arum has blossomed at the Niagara Parks Floral Showcase. The flower is rare. Approximately 150 of these plants are known to exist throughout the world. The flower is recognized as the tallest blossoming plant, and the flower exudes a strong, putrid odor that has been compared to rotting meat.

The bloom will be on display today from 9:30 this morning until 9 tonight.

Saturday & Sunday 6 a.m. to 12 p.m.
