This summer we had several flowers appear on the “Stink Lily”. Officially named draconis vulgaris, also Dragon Flower, Voodoo Lily, etc. It looks pretty enough, but smells like rotting meat. Ugh.

Draconis Vulgaris

Draconis Vulgaris

The first time it bloomed a couple of years ago I had no idea what it was. Just looked like a pretty/strange flower. Then the smell. Yuck! Looked it up and found out what it really was. Now I leave it because it’s an interesting novelty. That and I keep thinking when it seeds I might spread the seeds around town for fun. 🙂
