HI

voodoo lily

Dracunculus vulgaris is a species of aroid in the genus Dracunculus and is known variously as the common dracunculus, dragon lily, dragon arum
. In Greece, part of its native range, the plant is called drakondia, the long spadix being viewed as a small dragon hiding in the spathe.
It is endemic to the Balkans, extending as far as Greece, Crete, and the Aegean Islands, and also to the south-western parts of Anatolia
The species is characterized by a large purple spathe and spadix, which has a very unpleasant smell reminiscent of rotting meat to attract flies (Lucilia and others) as pollinators. The large palmate leaves have occasional cream flecks along the veins.

height about 1m and will multiple




Not a great deal is known about this plant but it is thought to contain fatty acid methyl esters. The root is toxic and a skin irritant. It produces berries like the Arum maculatum but the taste discourages ingestion.

sometimes grown in gardens for ornamental purposes. But smells bad

Unknown
