Did you notice how Mr. Stinky's spadix went from purple to yellowish pink?
They all seem to lighten when they are fully open.
One that didn't was Big Bucky that bloomed in Wisconsin in 2001 (only a few
weeks after Mr. Stinky). That spadix stayed a very dark purple, I'll send
you a photo.
But I agree- it is curious!
Julius knows for sure but I think all these bloomers came from seed
distributed by the late Dr. James Symon. We owe him a huge debt!
