Rafflesia arnoldii - Largest Blooming Flower in the World
Not really a pretty sight, but the Rafflesia arnoldii is considered the largest flower in the world and located in only one spot in the world, Sabah, Malaysia, which is on the island of Borneo. When you visit Sabah, they post sightings of this flower at each hotel as it is also very rare that one is available for viewing. We were "lucky" to have one in its early state of decay as pictured. This flower grows on the ground and rarely blossoms.
