Flowers are the most relished references in literature and in real life for birthdays, christenings and even funerals. The stuff of fairy tales and fair folk. The essence of perfumes and the staple of romances.

The world’s largest single flower known as Rafflesia arnoldii known as the corpse lily in common practice is so called because it smells like rotting flesh so it can attract flies for pollination! The flower is endemic to the rainforests of Sumatra and Borneo and is one of the 3 national flowers of Indonesia.
