Corpse Flower at Conservatory of Flower San Francisco

The largest flower in the world, and the stinkiest flower was displayed at the Conservatory of Flowers in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park. This large lily rarely blooms so it was a huge media event. We drove up to the city Wednesday afterwork.

After we see the lily, we explore the inside of the lily.

The humid conservatory is the perfect climate for tropical orchids and other plants.
