(NECN: Eileen Curran) - What's big, smelly, and taking center stage in Boston? The answer can be found at the Franklin Park Zoo.
A rare plant, affectionately known as Morticia, the amorphophallus titanum, is on display as the zoo for visitors to see - and smell.
Standing at 4-feet, 6-inches in height this "corpse flower" is only in bloom once every five to 15 years.
NECN Reporter Eileen Curran went into the greenhouse, holding her nose, to check out the lovely piece of nature.
