R for Rafflesia arnoldi

Rafflesia arnoldii, the largest flower in earth, its diameter could reach one meter
Named after Thomas Stamford Raffles, but commonly called as "bunga bangkai" or corpse flower,
because of its scent.

is that why it looks so hysterical?
or because it is now considered as endangered flower?

BTW, I made this cute red with polka dots at the Crafty days


  1. so cute! in malaysia, we call this flower "bunga pakma"

  2. Thanks, Amani :)
    interesting, sounds a lot better than "bunga bangkai"!
