Hi Lester and all,

Here in a zone 9 climate I grow Dracunculus in full sun.

My soil is very sandy with a layer of Oak compost.

I am chasing plant or seed of Dracunculus vulgaris other than the usual
red/black flower. Can anyone help?
Also I have posted a photo of Arisaema bogneri from Gaoligongshan to the
photo album on my web pages for anyone interested. I think it is the first
time it has flowered in cultivation.
