    I think it's rather lovely. I'd love it in mine. I'm curious why you might lose it.

  • the description says it smell of dead meat to attract flies

    and does it?

    If the smell is awful, and right next to your back door, or a window you keep opened, maybe, but if it's tucked away and you don't smell it unless you get close, I'd keep it. 

    Your garden, your choice. I think their flowering period is short, so maybe enjoy the novelty of it for the time being?

    It doesn't smell for long, just til it's been fertilised.image

  • not smelling it at the moment luckily  and it is tucked away at the back of the border under the holly tree, i didn't plant it , it has just appeared, as long as we aren't plagued by flies it can stay
