I dunno, I got as far as 'no flower for corruption' and immediately 
thought "Rafflesia!"
Rafflesia arnoldii always sticks in my mind because it's such an unusal 
and gorgeously macrabe plant in so many ways, many of which would have 
made it appropriate as another correspondance like you were looking for.
A parasitic plant growing in the jungles of Indonesia, it lives entirely 
within its host until it flowers, then puts out what is believed to be 
the largest flower on Earth.  And best of all, because it uses flies 
and carrion beetles for pollination it uses an appearance and scent 
like that of rotting meat.
