What an absolutely stunning photo! Good job Dave. Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! You can see every little detail.

Thank you. Smiling I took that photo ages ago with a very old digital camera. Hilarious!

Goes to show that old can be just as good as new sometimes.

It's definitely an exotic plant, and the bloom stinks like dead meat!

When I was growing up a neighbor had some which were a different variety but same thing --- the blooms stunk like dead meat & I recall there were always a hoard of flies around it. YUK!

It's true, but I still love those plants. They are fun and easy to grow. Here's the grandiflora species:

Ah! That is the one the neighbor had!
I know what you mean about them. I always was intrigued by the plant & loved it's looks. And anything which grew well with little to no care down in the harsh conditions of zone 10 coastal Fl., in nothing but pure sand & full sun, was a welcome plant. We used to joke that the plant was a blessing b/c the flies stayed near it rather than trying to get in the house or bother people. Hilarious!
