This photo provided by the U.S. Botanic Garden shows Titan arum, a giant rainforest plant that has been dubbed the corpse flower for its terrible smell, as it starts blooming Sunday, July 21, 2013 at the U.S. Botanic Garden next to the Capitol in Washington D.C. Experts had been anticipating its bloom for more than a week. Garden officials expect peak smell to occur early Monday morning, and the flower to remain open for an estimated 24 to 48 hours. Then it will begin to collapse on itself. The last corpse flower to bloom at the U.S. Botanic Garden was in 2007. (AP PhotoU.S. Botanic Garden)
