Rafflesia arnoldii (also known as the stinking corpse lily)

Rafflesia arnoldii is the largest single bloom. It's a huge flower that stinks of rotting flesh; the smell attracts small flies which pollinate the flower.

While the Titan arum is the world's tallest and largest inflorescence flower. That also stinks of rotting flesh.

They both come for the island of Sumatra. They are also found in the Philippines.
