Rare corpse flower noses its way into the spotlight at Sac State

All eyes - and noses - are on Sacramento State's corpse flower, which bloomed Monday for the first time in 20 years. The massive plant is aptly named for the pungent, even repugnant, fragrance it emits when it flowers. The blooming is the first in a series of events set to take place in the Living Gallery, which allows students and visitors to witness biological processes in real time on campus. It also marks an important milestone for the University's Biological Sciences Department, setting the unit ahead of the curve in offering world-class experiences for its students.
