    Son was playing basketball in front of the house today and said something smells like it died after searching this is what I found I have had this plant for 5 years and finally it bloomed and the smell is horrible and smells exactly like something died.

    Amorphophallus paeoniifolius. Have a few of them around the yard myself.

    How large is this flower?
    found two flowers in my yard one is 12" wide and the other one is 20"wide and is the largest flower I have ever had in the garden

    Nice. I've got one planted that is around 3 years old. It hasn't sprouted yet this spring. Looking forward to it! What an awesome plant!

    Flower is approx 12 inches. At least the smell of death went away after a few hours. It is quite an odd plant
    Thanks to all for responding


    pocomo nailed it I had no clue what this was.
