    It looks very much like something we accidentally bought for,our own garden with a lovely flower but stank of dead meat, think it is Dracunculus vulgaris

    It isn’t the deliberate planting of a plant from a garden centre, various house plant pots have been emptied out across the bed to reuse the compost, so it could be an accidental planting of a house plant .
