Description Fine Print
 
Many a gardener has called us in June with hushed and embarrassed tales of a strange and terrifying flower menacing their delicate flowers which they have no memory of planting. I tell them: "You have a case of Dracunculus vulgaris!” Emerging from a giant bulb like a mottled spear, the plant produces an upright, three foot stalk holding a few (often silver speckled) leaves. The stalk is topped with a lurid 18 inch burgundy spathe with a columnar purple-black spadix. It has an unpleasant “aroma” for a few days so don't plant near your front door. Goes dormant after flowering.
