VooDoo x2

Spring is ahead of schedule and so is the voodoo lily.

I just added this to my garden last year and I expected it to take 2-3 years before it was ready to bloom. 

Maybe it was just so happy to have survived the crazy winter.  Now it is ready to bloom x 2.

This promises to be pretty spectacular.  Stinky too.  The blooms smell like rotting meat because this flower plans on attracting flies for pollination. 

Something to look forward to :-<

  1. I was trying to think of a way to say something nice about your voodoo lily despite it looking creepy, but now that you tell us it smells like rotting meat I won’t worry about it.
    Why, oh why did you get this? Hopefully the blossoms will be spectacular…in a lovely way.

  2. Not so sure about the smell, but I love those colors and spots. And I do love a plant that’s clever like that. I’ll watch yours bloom from here, if you don’t mind.

  3. Suzy, you’re the first person I know who has grown one of these very exotic plants – can’t wait to see it open but glad I won’t have to smell it (I’m vegetarian, ha! ha!).
    Hope all is well – know you, like me, are keeping busy in the garden. Have fun.
    I’ve a new blog now – A Breath of Fresh Air – hope you stop by.
    Fondly, Mary.

  4. Rotting meat? Oh my…I hope the blooms are pretty enough to be worth it. LOL
    We have a tree whose blooms smell like a cat in heat. But its in the far corner of the yard, so I admire it from afar. πŸ™‚

  5. Is it just me or do those look like some kind of funky snakes rising out of your flower pot? Looking forward to seeing what the bloom looks like. Happy Spring! -amy
