Dracunculus vulgaris


By Siris

Dracunculus vulgaris (Dracunculus vulgaris (Dragon arum))

The spathe of the dragon arum, probably one of the stinkiest flowers in the world. Foul!

Not if it's near the house. The spathe on one of mine was a good foot tall, quite spectacular, and the stem is speckled, but oh! the smell. Would do well placed well away from habitation in a wood/ wild garden. I had thought about putting a poly bag over it, but in the end have removed this clump. If you truly want one I can post you the corm/rhizome? Think carefully! Lol S
