Support Horticulture and the Titan Arum

Titan Arum in Linnean HouseAmorphophallus titanum, titan arum, corpse flower. The rare blooms of this  immense tropical plant peak in the middle of the night—as does the foul smell that attracts flies to pollinate it. 

The titan arum is only found in Sumatra and Indonesia, and its habitat is being destroyed. Titan arums in botanical gardens are critical for education and survival of the species.

“It’s part of our mission to educate the public about these plants. We’re lucky that people decided to collect titan arum seeds and distribute them to botanical gardens. Now, everyone can see a titan arum bloom, rather than being unable to see it because it’s extinct.”
–Emily Colletti, Horticulture, Missouri Botanical Garden

Please make a gift today to support the work of our horticulture team to support the titan arum and other rare and endangered plants in our living collections.
