Last night was a very big night! Romero’s bloom opened and emitted a foul stench throughout the normally lovely floral Phipps. Romero (named after Pittsburgh’s zombie film-maker George Romero), is a corpse flower. These plants only bloom for 24-48h every 6-8 years and when they do, they emit a rather foul stench to attract beetles to pollinate them. Flowers are very clever.
