Voodoo Lily

Well its late fall here so there isn't much going on in my garden.   The bee's are for the most part staying in there hives except on really warm days.

This is go good time to start planing for next year.   I ran across this picture of Voodoo Lily 1 Bulb - Dracunculus vulgaris - Indoors/Out.   Now its not frost hardy past zone 6 so its something I will have to remember to take in for the winter.   But isn't it a lovely flower.

I have some some research on the Voodoo Lily,  it may be beautiful but there is a drawback.  When this plant blooms it gives off a horrid odor resembling that of dung or of a corpse as a means to attract flies which pollinate it.     I think I will be planting it at the far corner of the garden,  or maybe the near the mail box would be good keep the post man and his bills away.
