Native to the rocky limestone cliffs of Corsica, Sardinia, and the Balearic Islands, this unusual little plant has a flower that resembles the backside of a pig and smells like one too (but I can't vouch for that exactly)! It's reserved for those who like an intriguing plant and are not faint of heart, or for those who like a good chortle over earthy things (kids?). It's pollinated by...you guessed it...flies. Apparently, they like its carrion aroma and heat-emitting flower. Are you an Aroid enthusiast? If so, don't be shy...here is your plant!

Minimum temperature: 0° F
