Rafflesia Coloring Page

The rafflesia is a parasitic plant with the largest blooming flower in the world - measuring over 3 feet in diameter and weighing upwards of 22 pounds. The flower is of a distinct orange color and emits a strong odor of rotting meat which attracts insects that in turn pollinate the plant. The rafflesia can be found in the rainforests of Southeast Asia, particularly Indonesia and Malaysia.
