Big and smelly

Aristolochia grandiflora 1
Aristolochia grandiflora (Pelican flower)
The Pelican flower plant makes huge heart-shaped flowers which are over a foot long. But the gargantuan size also comes with a gargantuan smell that's been compared to the smell of a dead rodent. Native to Central America, this vine is a favorite of botanical gardens.
