As a non-stinky tuberous aroid alternative, I'll offer Taccarum 
weddellianum (picture attached, I think). Culture is just like one of 
the easy Amorphophallus, but the fragrance is light and pleasant. I 
don't think it has much hardiness, but then I haven't tried it outdoors. 
It offsets fairly readily, so maybe I will this year.
