Rare LARGE flower in bloom in Niagara

5/6/2012

Time is running out to catch one of the world's tallest flowers in bloom and it's right here is our backyard.

Experts at the Niagara Parks Floral Showhouse say the rare Amorphophallus titanum won't stay open past today.

It has only bloomed in botanical gardens 21 times to date.

This is believed to be the first occurrence in Canada.

Because of all the excitement surrounding this rare plant, the Floral Showhouse has extended their hours 9:30am-9:00pm daily until the end of the second blooming.
