isn't this fantastic....

Hugo de Vries, shown standing next to Amorphophallus titanium, a member of the calla lily family. The plant, a native from the Sumatran jungles, has one of the most massive inflorescences, or flower clusters. The picture was taken at the arboretum of the Agricultural College at Wageningen, Holland in 1932.
