  • We have these in our yard from time to time. I looked it up and they are a type of fungus called Stinkhorn. Very creepy looking.

    Wow that's odd looking. I'm thinking maybe Douglas or Four Season Nursery & Landscaping might though.

    Smelly, and a fairly common sight in Florida. Also known, colorfully, as deadman's fingers. For a good discussion, see:

    I knew one of you would know. Thank you Douglas and Four Season for stopping in. Quite an amazing "thing". Hard to call it a plant.

    lol Connie H , I have picture of the ahummm 'phallus' one I took here at the nursery, which I didn't smell! I stayed pretty far way from it because it was really really peculiar :)

    Sorry but this looks like poop to me. It was the first thing I thought about but obviously artistic poop ;-)
