KUSA - There's a new 'Little Stinker' at the Denver Botanic Gardens. A corpse flower bloomed overnight and will be on display Saturday and Sunday.
Known as StinkyDBG's little brother, Little Stinker's bloom surprised the staff at the gardens.
Corpse flowers bloom every 8 to 10 years. Plus, the plant that blossomed last year was the first of its kind to do so in the Rocky Mountain region, so for this to happen two years in a row is very rare says Jennifer Riley-Chetwynd with the Denver Botanic Gardens.
You can see Little Stinker at Marnie's Pavilion from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Like its stinky older brother, the bloom and smell only lasts 24 to 48 hours.
For many who rushed to see Little Stinker Saturday morning, it was a chance to make up for missing the bloom last year.
"It was such a surprise I wanted to get here right away," Bridget Dyer says, "I said to my fiancé, hurry up and eat. We need to get to the Botanic Gardens right now and beat the crowds."
Lines were wrapped around the pavilion when the corpse flower bloomed in August of 2015.
StinkyBDJ became an online phenomenon when it opened for the first time, sharing its dreadful stench of rotting flesh. The whole event was streamed online and garnered viewers from around the world.
