Dracunculus Vulgaris

Dracunculus Vulgaris, this is probably one of the most vulgar plants that we supply but is extremely great fun to grow. The flower is enormous, rather rude looking and has a revolting smell, luckily this smell does not last for very long maybe a day or two. The other side to this plant is the foliage, which really is interesting, the stem grows to about 3 – 4 ft, is mottled green, speckled like a giraffe’s neck, tropical looking foliage is borne above the stem.

Flowers June, July.
Large bulbs supplied, size 25/30

Dracunculus Vulgaris (dragon Arum) Frost hardy perennial.      I have found that this plants loves a shady sheltered position with well-drained soil. It is  probably, one of the most vulgar plants on this site, but great fun to grow.    The flowers are enormous, and have a rather revolting smell, flies like it!   Luckily this smell does not last for very long.    The other side to this plant is the foliage, which really is fascinating; the stem grows to about 3ft if not taller, which is mottled green and brown, like a giraffe’s neck, preceding the stem is the rather interesting foliage, which sprays out like a fan.    The plant starts growing early May reaching maturity in July and the foliage will carry through to November.      I have always said this plant is a must have for those who enjoy the unusual but as its so easy to grow I think everyone should have a go.
