Veratrum nigrum

I love this large leaf perennial. It reminds me of some of the plants in the tropical jungle. The tall spike of black flowers gives it such a mysterious look. Its flowers are supposed to be smelly and attract flies. So far I have not noticed it yet. It has been in my garden for more than eight years and still refuses to multiply.
