The same does my Dracunculus. I store
it during winter in a fridge and in December it usually wakes up so I have to
take it from the fridge and put near the window. It blooms usually in February
and till the spring comes it is already dormant again.

|I dont know what you are doing different but mine start
waking up in the mid to late winter then flower in the spring and die
back by mid to late spring. Is that normal?|

Congratulations on your purchase. Here in
Canby, Oregon, USA, zone 7B I grow mine in the ground about 6"
deep. They've been in the ground for about 50 years, during
which time they have been dug, divided, and moved four times. My
soil is sandy so even though it rains a lot during the winter and
spring, I have had no problems with rot. I keep them watered
during the growing season and don't worry about them after that.
My wife mulches everything with leaves and grass clippings which is
all the fertilizer they get. At this time they are sporting
large, bright orange infructescences which contain hundreds of
individual berries, each containing 1-3 seeds. The birds like to
eat them when they are thoroughly ripe. Mine only have a very
mild odor (either that or my nose is shorting out) and the huge purple
inflorescences are so beautiful! I can hardly wait until next
summer for them to bloom again.
Best of luck with
Canby OR USA

I have juust bought a Dracunculus vulgaris tuber, which I believe
to be hardy where I live in the UK. I just wondered whether anybody
had any experience with this and how to get the best out of it.
I'm excited to see how it will do.
All the best,
