Hold the phone...hold your nose...cover your eyes...the dazzling Viagra Lily (aka: Dragon Arum) is ready to flower. This amorphophallus cousin from the Mediterranean is equally as bizarre, but much more winter-hardy. After cold weather ends, the 3' stalk, clothed with only two three-pedate leaves, emerges from the giant bulb. In late May in NC, the stalk is topped with the 18" flower. Picture a fleshy, purple, ruffled vase, from the center of which emerges a fleshy appendage resembling an upside-down purple carrot...call the botanical artists in your neighborhood for this special treat. Just tell them to hold their noses for the first day.
