Corpse flower to have rare bloom at Como Park Zoo and Conservatory [View all]

Corpse flower to have rare bloom at Como Park Zoo and Conservatory

The corpse flower has captured the curiosity of Como Park Zoo and Conservatory visitors.

It’s expected to bloom soon, possibly this weekend.

“I just walked by and I was very intrigued,” said Tina Kallio from Newport. “I have never heard of one.”

There are fewer than 1,000 of these flowers in the wild. The corpse flower, scientifically known as Amorphophallus titanium, is from the island of Sumatra in Indonesia.

Witnessing a bloom is a rare opportunity — this will be the first time it will happen since the flower arrived in St. Paul in 2019.

Hmm, I work only five minutes away from the Conservatory, do I or don't I?
