Dragon Flower

Zone 80020 | Anonymous added on October 19, 2018 | Answered

My daughter recently ordered a Dragon Flower from Breck\'s. But they were out of stock. She was heart broken, since she really wants it for the landscape she\'s making for her first house, which had not one flower! (She has dozens now!) I can\'t find any locally, nor on a few mail order sources I\'ve searched. Can you possibly tell me where I can buy one for her? It would make her day, no her month! Thank you in advance.

It seems that the reason there aren't many results is that they are using a less known term for the flower. Dracunculus vulgaris it its scientific name. There are many forms and colors, and most online places carry the seeds bulbs, and live plants. They can also be located using the term "Voodoo Lily". Be aware that all plants in the arum family are very smelly. All of them carry a smell of rotting meat, or flesh as they bloom.
