is flowering . This year there are two more buds coming.
Each year the older flower gets bigger and bigger. I am hoping for a large clump the same as the original that mine came from.
Yes they do smell awful, but only for a few days and you have to be close anyway.
I think they are worth the bad smell.
I had to move it last year as the greenhouse was going where is was. It has done even better where it sits now and I found a tiny one coming up in the old site in the greenhouse. I will pot it later when it dies off.
I have 3 others of similar type down in the shadehouse, I am hopeful I will see them flower one day.
