Biggest Flower of The World - Rafflesia


        
      "Rafflesia is the largest flower in the world.It is also known as  corpse flower,these flowers are 3 feet in diameter that means by  width and length they are very large.    
Rafflesia was first found in the Rain forest of Indonesia by an Indonesian guide. Apart from Indonesia it is also found in Thailand,Philippines and some other places of Southern Asia.It is the biggest single flower on the Earth, the strange thing about this flower is that it smells like dead animal or any rotten object that's why flies are attracted to it,it has no stem ,no leaves or true roots. Rafflesia is the official State flower of Indonesia.

    Well! You learn something every day. I didn't know that, what a flower. It looks like something from Alice in Wonderland or the Wizard of Oz. I can't stop looking at it.
