    Default Dracunculus vulgaris (aka Arum dracunculus)

    I couldn't figure out what the bad smell was this morning. I forgot this was about to open. The flower is 24 inches long. There is a bigger one coming.

    The largest one has a few side growths. Remind me later in the season and I'll dig it up to see if they can be removed. I just threw them in the ground when they were given to me about 5 years ago. I know very little about them. They have been winter hardy here. Are yours?

    How strange that bloom is. Such a great color though. Thanks for posting it.

    That's not the actual flower. Hundreds of flowers are at the base of the spathe. If pollinated become a cluster of orange berries.
