The Western Skunk Cabbage (also known as ‘swamp lantern’) and the Eastern Skunk Cabbage (also clumpfoot cabbage and polecat weed) both have blossoms over one foot in diameter. They are native to the Pacific Northwest and the Southeast, respecitively. Both plants, however, are dwarfed by the worlds largest plants, the raflessia arnoldi and the titan arum. The raflessia can have blooms over 3 feet wide and the titan arum has clusters which grow over ten feet tall.
In addition to being the largest flowers, these flowers are also, perhaps paradoxically, the foulest smelling.
