PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A rare flower has bloomed over the weekend at Temple University’s Ambler Campus — and it’s stinking the place up! It’s called a Corpse flower and looks and smells like death.
It’s rare to see even one of the flowers because the plant typically only blooms once every seven to 10 years. The bloom itself only lasts a couple of days.READ MORE: 6 Day Workweeks And Poked By Needles: YaFavTrashman Fighting For Philadelphia Sanitation Workers' Safety
