    Hi pansyface,  it is a bit strange - its not a uk native but over the last 10 years I have seen one or two in customers gardens - it is dracunulus vulgaris or dragon arum - i think it smells really horrible of pooh!

    (but I have not really sniffed at it in case I am sick)  really easy to grow and take care of and a bit of a crowd puller in the garden just as something that others dont have.

    I love  it. 

    The foliage looks like my amorphophallus. No tittering at the back.
