Stinky corpse flower opens in New York

The world's smelliest flower has bloomed in New York - and it stinks!

The rare plant is called the corpse flower because it smells a bit like rotting meat or sick.

It's one of the biggest flowering plants on earth and can grow up to six feet - as tall as a grown man.

This is the first time it has bloomed in ten years and luckily the flower only lasts for a couple of days.
