Pete, I would strongly urge you to tell people that Sauromatum is
potentially invasive. I do not think it should be planted out of
containers. We have a research group here at the University of Washington
that has worked with this species for 50+ years studying thermogenicity. I
made the mistake of planting tubers in my garden at home to try and grow
the researches a big crop. 15 years later I am still trying to eradicate
them from my garden.     Doug
