BOSTON—A giant plant at the Franklin Park Zoo known as the corpse flower because of the rotting flesh stench it gives off has bloomed.
Zoo officials say the plant native to the Indonesian island of Sumatra started to bloom on Tuesday and typically stays in flower for a short period of time.
The zoo’s plant, dubbed Morticia, can be viewed for free at certain times on Wednesday.
Zoo officials say about 9,000 people have already stopped by for a whiff.
