University of Washington Botanical Greenhouses










           The University of Washington Botanical Greenhouses are best known for their rotting corpse plan (Amorphophallus titanum). About once every seven years you can catch a whiff of this unusual plant if you are quick enough. However, the bloom collapses within a week.


            While you are waiting, the greenhouses offer a wonderful collection of unusual ferns, cycads, orchids, palms, cacti, and tropical plants. The collection is divided into four separate greenhouses with different climates.
