‘Corpse flower’ set to bloom at Dartmouth College

DARTMOUTH, NH (WHDH) — A special flower is set to bloom at Dartmouth College.

Commonly known as the “corpse flower,” it only blooms about every six years.

When it does bloom the flower, nicknamed Morphy, will give off a stench that has been linked to rotting flesh.

The plant is expected to bloom by the end of the week.
