Rafflesia Arnoldii

World's Largest Flower, the rafflesia arnoldii.

Rafflesia Arnoldii is the world's largest flower, 3 feet in diameter. What makes this so unique is the fact that it has no leaves, stems or roots. It is a parasite. It attaches itself to a vine and lives off the nutrients of its host. It also smells really bad.
