Another Chance at A Corpse Flower

If you were too far away -- or too late -- to get a whiff of the Brooklyn Botanic Garden’s corpse flower last week, you can still make haste for Seattle’s Volunteer Park Conservatory where you can get a load of Husky, a mature corpse flower on loan from the University of Washington’s botany greenhouse. According to the Seattle Times:

Husky began life as an almond-size seed in Sumatra, and now is 5 feet tall and weighs more than 80 pounds. The UW last year loaned a corpse flower named Waldo, which still resides at the conservatory.

If you’re in the Pacific Northwest and thinking you might like to get to the Conservatory before the stink is gone, you can call 206-684-4743 for updates on Husky’s current state.
