Yardley, PA

Gonolobus cyclophyllus has been blooming for awhile and it really does
smell like poop! It is pretty to look at though. Fly's love it.

It is amazing for such a small flower that you can definitely get that aroma. Yuck.

I always love brown flowers, not exactly sure why. How big are the flowers? Would be fun if you could get seeds.

The flower is about the size of your thumb naill....not very big. I haven't seen seeds on mine.

I don't know how to be a bee? It's to late right now.

Actually, flies pollinate this particular flower. That is why they smell like poop.
