Lucky you!!!

Of all mine in the ground, the only ones up so far are the Dracunculus vulgaris.  I must have one of the "wimpy sissy" clones.  It only smells faintly - kind of like a dead cat in the next-door to the next-door neighbor's yard.

Upon getting home from work yesterday afternoon, as soon as I opened the
car door, this awful putrid smell hit me......and I knew exactly what it was.

In the garden the following were in full bloom:

11 Amorphophallus konjac
1 Amorphophallus dunnii
9 Helicodiceros muscivorus
4 Dracunculus vulgaris
6 various Arum species

The scent of the tall bearded Iris never had a chance of being noticed -- Spring
