    A triffid!?!?   :D

    Sorry, I don't know. I guess a lily of some sort, but I'd be interested to know also.

    One of the Arums. Possibly dracunculus - the dragon lily.
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...

    Yes Dracunculus vulgaris. Wonderful flower but so smelly.
    Fantastic that you have 3 flowers and maybe you will get seeds from them.
    Ours is only one and whilst we have small plants that start growing they never develop so getting more hasn't happened.
    Did you plant the seeds (many years before flowering) or plants or have you seen it growing somewhere?
    They will die back after flowering so if in your garden mark where they are so that you don't start digging in that area next year.
