Dracunculus vulgaris

Hi all --

"Vulgaris" is the operative word, here. My large clump will be going  
dormant soon, so if anyone in the US would like to grow their own  
"Dragon Arum" please let me know. They are a fun plant to grow, so  
long as they aren't near an open window or doorway! I always have  
abundant tubers that I can pop in the mail. I read that they are  
hardy to zone 5b.

Here in Seattle, their mottled stems emerge in February or March;  
they bloom in June and go dormant in July.

PS -- I don't know the rules about shipping overseas, hence the  
shipping in the US. If it is legal, I can send them anywhere. I'm  
sure some of you know more about this than I do. I'm fairly new to  
this group.
