For all you Mr Stinky fans! And I am continually amazed to meet someone new who asks about Mr Stinky when they find I am the WKF blogger!
The beautiful flower from past posts shriveled away and I was left with a pot of dirt – for weeks and weeks nothing was growing out of the dirt – I poked around and found at least a dozen corms so I did some re-potting and shared a few corms/plants and waiting for what was left to sprout. Today, July 3 here is what Mr Stinky’s family looks like:
Mr Stinky and Family
As you can see they are just beginning to sprout – much more interesting is the fact that several corms I left in the garden have been growing for about 2 weeks – REALLY GROWING! Two plants are over 3 feet tall and nearly that wide – take a look
See the smaller Stinkies in front of the steps?
This one showed up in the middle of the Iris Patch
I love the speckled stems
Strange foliage - looks pre-historic to me
So I guess with the mild winters we now have in St Louis, Mr Stinky will be perennial!
