Dracunculus vulgaris

Recommended Posts

My Dracunculus is in full flower today. It puts the smell if Stapelias to shame!

Then it looks a whole lot better than it smells then:-) fantastic, does it stay outside all year?

Great result Richard, mine's been in a pot since we moved house and it looks like it just died. I'll see if I can sneak it into the Missus flower bed when she's not looking.

Gaz, this is my 7th attempt at this plant. All previous attempts have been in pots and have failed miserably!

I'm really surprised at how hardy this plant is. I planted the tuber last October and due to the mild winter it had sprouted a shoot by mid December. The hard frosts then arrived and I was certain all the soft growth would be killed back but I didn't even get so much as a blackened leaf tip.

Stick it in the garden, the smell only lasts the one day!
