Ooha. Easy there, Peter. I'm positive that last picture could cause night mares in several forumist homes tonight.  8) Good thing most forumists are not under age! You have really caught it in the flesh, so to speak.
Marvellous plant. Is it outside in the rock garden, or do you keep it in doors?

Sometimes Anthony, it's called (or listed as) Dracunculus muscivorus.

Yes, there is a certain anatomical look to it, and one which we shan't discuss in mixed company thank you.

And it's nicknamed the "Dead Horse Arum", and not for just the smell!!  ;D
