Rare site at the Domes: Corpse flower blooms Wednesday, June 13

MILWAUKEE -- The corpse flower at the Mitchell Park Domes slowly started to open on Tuesday, June 12, and people were invited to watch it bloom on Wednesday -- something that only happens once every seven to 10 years.

Officials said the corpse flower was expected to be fully open and give off its characteristic smell of a rotting corpse Wednesday.

If you would like to check out the corpse flower, officials said the full scent lasts from 24 to 48 hours.
