Dracuncula Vulgaris
This dramatic flower, which is about a foot long, is impossible to ignore. Gardener Jayne-Anne O'Reilly reports that during the period it is opening, it stinks like carrion and  in fact attracted a pair of vultures, which circled menacingly overhead for several days. Once open, the smell disappears and the intense colour and bold shape remain.
