Friday October 28, 2-3:00pm

Join us each month as we highlight San Diego Botanic Garden’s commitment to
and support of current plant-based research.


This month we will feature SDBG’s Curator of Collections, Jeremy Bugarchich, as
he explains the biology and history of Amorphophallus titanum, also known as
the Corpse Flower. This carrion flower, known for smelling like rotting meat, is the
largest unbranched inflorescence in the world. A now endangered plant, native
to Sumara, has one of the most unusual life cycles with a complicated past and
an unclear future. Come learn why this plant is so unique in the plant kingdom
and why each bloom is truly spectacular.


San Diego Botanic Garden operates according to current County and State
guidelines. In accordance with guidance from the County of San Diego and the
California Department of Public Health, SDBG encourages visitors to wear masks
indoors.
