Well, if he really wants to grow something that smells like a decaying 
woodchuck, a week dead and rotting in the summer heat, Dracunculus 
vulgaris should do it for him.

It is not difficult to find. Both Brent & Becky's Bulbs, also McClure & 
Zimmerman are offering it in their catalogs for fall planting. B&B $4.50 
each, 5 for $19.50. M&Z $10.50 each, 3 for $26.95

Myself, I'd prefer to plant outdoors in spring. Perhaps pot up and keep 
dry over the winter in a frost free location.

But it is fully hardy here in western New Jersey. My earliest images are 
from late June 2009. So it has been in the ground, no extra protection, 
for better than a decade. Planted one, still have just one. Don't recall 
any seed set but I'll keep watch.
