  the White Dragon bleeds

A few weeks back there was some discussion on the list about
the white flowering form of Dracunculus vulgaris (which I included
below). After 9 years of growing, what I had hoped would be this
magnificent aroid, from seed it finally showed its true colors. See:
http://www4.ncsu.edu/~alan/plants/aroids/dracunculus/drac-pg2/

What is pictured isn't quite as spectacular as the photos that
Wilbert put on the IAS web site, but it's still worth the wait!

Pretty spectacular IMO and lovely variegated foliage!

Thanks for sharing the photos of this great plant. My own
Dracunculus vulgaris seems to have vanished; I hope to get down to
Plant Delights during one of the open houses and fetch a replacement...

Clear skies,
Al

Alan,
Those white Dracunculus are beautiful. You did a good job with them! Their
spadixes appear unusually thin and pointy for that species. Do you notice
that is consistent in the white-flowered form?
If you ever have seed or offsets available, I know I would love to give it
a try. My normal purple guys could use the contrasting color neighbors!
Thanks for posting the pictures!
