    arum in my backyard

    Thought I'd share some pics of some arums that grow in my backyard. Not sure what species though--but they stink!!! The cloud of flies moved away long enough to take a photo or two.

    Incase you haven't figured it out, it looks to be a Dracunculus vulgaris

    Sweet! I love these guys but they are so phototopic (bend to the sun) they always flip over in pots and I have no land with surrounding vegetation to keep them upright. I also kill the dormant bulbs so I just get to enjoy them in pics.

    Does it actually stink? Any that I've had bloom only smelled like a rubber halloween mask.
