Special Exhibit

Amorphophallus Konjac Display

Coming late February 2017

Amorphophallus konjac

Experience a spectacular display of a dozen blooming specimens of Amorphophallus Konjac.
This common relative of the Titan Arum (Amorphophallus titanum) also emits a foul stench.

Commonly called the Voo-Doo Lily or Devil's Tongue, the bloom arises from the dormant tuber with larger specimens reaching 4 to 5 feet in height. Most of that height is the long stem of the bloom. Just as in the Titan Arum, the blooms are only open for two to three days, but with the large number of specimens in our display, we anticipate having several in bloom each day over the course of two to three weeks.

Visiting Hours: Monday-Friday 8:30AM-4:30PM

This display is made possible by the generosity of
OSU alum John Lentz and his wife, Marci,
who have passionately grown these specimens for many years.
