'Corpse Flower' draws crowds to Raleigh garden

RALEIGH, N.C. (WTVD) -- People are flocking to the Juniper Level Botanic Gardens this weekend to smell a flower that literally smells like rotting flesh.

The Corpse Flower, which started blooming yesterday, is only one of 550 that have bloomed in cultivation since the late 1800's.

The flower can go a decade in between blooms.
