MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- The past few days have been pretty smelly at the Milwaukee Public Museum.
One of the museum's four corpse flowers bloomed over the weekend.
The exotic flower is actually called a Titan Arum.
It got its nickname because of the terrible odor it gives off, which some describe as baby diapers or rotting flesh.
A corpse flower can reach nine feet tall and sometimes blooms only once every 15 years.
The Milwaukee flower is a descendant of the Titan Arum at UW-Madison.
