Is that an Araceae plant, or is that man just happy to see you? Actually, the man in this chromolithograph from an 1894 German book is standing beside the world's biggest flower, the Amorphophallus titanum (also known as the corpse flower due to its foul smell).

While you're not likely to have one of these giant plants in your garden, you are probably familiar with some other members of the Araceae family shown here, including the anthurium and the arum lily.

Much care was taken in printing these; thus, the colours are incredibly brilliant and the images razor sharp. There is some foxing, particularly at the top of the print, as shown in the last photo. Otherwise, this antique chromolithograph is in very good condition. Blank on the back.
