This is the amazing Titan arum (Amorphophallus titanum) at Kew Gardens, as featured on David Attenborough's Kingdom of Plants.

It is one of the most spectacular plants to be found in the wet tropics zone of Kew Gardens' Princess of Wales Conservatory.

With its huge flowering structure (inflorescence) rising over 2.5m above the ground and its single immense leaf, it certainly is a giant among plants, as its name suggests.

Coupled with its characteristic foul stench, and the rarity of flowerings, this plant has always hit the headlines.
