Rare and exotic plants

I have a fascination for plants. Rare and exotic are the most fascinating of all because they usually have such an incredible appearance.
I stumbled upon this web site which has an incredible number of plants on show (most have already been sold). This site is well worth the time spent looking at what's on show.
This is the amorphophallus titanum, the largest flower known that can reach a height of 2.5 metres and width of 1.5 metres.
This is something I'd like to have in my garden but the smell of rotting flesh that it gives off wouldn't be so desirable.

I think they only smell like that once a year.
