Flowers that look like dragons

The amazing Snapdragon Flower Seed Pod looks like a human skull

Advertisements

They’re beautiful when alive but once they shrivel up and die, things get a bit creepy. Meet the Snapdragon flower seed pod which bears the stark appearance of a human skull (or a human face screaming in agony).

The Snapdragon flower (aka Antirrhinum or dragon flower) can be found in many household gardens and gets its name from its flower which resembles a dragon’s head (squeeze the snapdragon flower and the “dragon” mouth will open and close making it “talk”). Yet once the flower has died it leaves behind a seed pod with the macabre appearance of a human head.

The Snapdragons name (Antirrhinum) comes from the Greek words “anti,” meaning like, and “rhin,” meaning nose. Many years ago, people thought the plant possessed mystical powers and would place them around their homes to shield the house from curses and witches. In Victorian days, the flower was a symbol of deception, suspicion, and mystery. Legend has it that concealing a snapdragon in your clothes makes a person appear fascinating, gracious, and cordial. Today they are a favorite in gardens around Europe, United States, and North Africa because, well, they look like dragon heads!

If you are itching to grow one, know that they are cold-season plants that do best in the sunlight. You can plant them right before the spring season starts. Keep them well watered for the first few weeks and after that, give them about 1 inch of water every week. When grown, they stand from 6 inches up to 3 feet tall. When dead they’ll leave behind the creepy tokens you can collect for display.

Check out the cool pictures of Snapdragon Flower skulls in the pictorial below (click picture for full-size view and slideshow).

Dragonhead

Dragonhead, (genus Dracocephalum), genus of about 70 species of plants in the mint family (Lamiaceae). Dragonheads are native to temperate Eurasia, with the exception of one species, the American dragonhead (Dracocephalum parviflorum), which is native to North America. Several species are grown as ornamentals for their attractive flowers.

Dragonheads are generally perennial plants. They can be prostrate or erect. The stems are square and bear simple leaves arranged oppositely or in whorls. The plants are characterized by tubular two-lipped flowers, lobed at the base and the upper lip, which resemble fanciful heads of dragons. The American dragonhead produces a dense spike of blue flowers at the top of its 60-cm- (2-foot-) high stem; the flowers of other species can be purple, pink, or white.

The related false dragonheads (genus Physostegia) consist of 12 species native to North America. The best known is the obedient plant (P. virginiana), which has large pink bell-like flowers on slender spikes and is grown as an ornamental.

Dracunculus vulgaris

If you do not know what pollinates this plant, just take a deep breath of the surrounding air when it comes into bloom. Once that smell hits your olfactory nerve, you will have no doubt what the voodoo lily is trying to lure. The odor is repulsive to us, but dung-loving flies and beetles adore the smell of carrion. It is best to site the plants away from windows and doors, as the smell is not something that inspires you to write poetry, the exception being if you were Edgar Allen Poe. Fortunately, the flower puts the odor into the air for only a few days, to gather in the pollinators. For the rest of its growing season, it adorns the garden with wonderful tropical-like foliage, large, unusual flowers, followed by Poe-approved, poisonous, scarlet berries.

Dracunculus vulgaris is a stress-free tuber to grow in the Pacific Northwest, providing you pay attention to its needs. The biggest problem we face, west of the Cascade Mountains, is its tubers rotting when not grown in well-drained soil. Stop watering it when the leaves dry up and go into dormancy. Supply it with compost or leaf mold to keep the soil humus rich, and you will have healthy plants that will grow tall and flower, coming back every year to throw its stench about for a few days.

Dracunculus has been used to fight cancer. Applied to cancerous growth, it is believed that its corrosive properties are what work against the growths.

All above ground parts and berries of Dracunculus are poisonous.

What Is A Dragon Arum Flower: Tips On Growing Dragon Arums

Dark and exotic plants provide drama and excitement to local flora. Dragon arum flower is one such specimen. The amazing form and deep intoxicating color are second only to its astounding stench during its peak. The plant actually does very well in cooler temperate climates where growing dragon arums only require minimum water and bright shade. Purchase a couple of tubers and learn how to grow a dragon arum so you can experience the exotic beauty of this plant.

What is Dragon Arum Lily?

Dragon arum lily (Dracunculus vulgaris) is also called voodoo lily, snake lily, stink lily and many more colorful monikers. With the spadix nestled in the center, it’s no wonder the plants are called amorphallus.

The plant is a deciduous tuber which produces large-fingered aroid leaves of glossy light green. The leaves perch atop thick stalks decorated with a snakeskin pattern and are set in groups of three. The plant begins to sprout in March, and soon the leaves are rising a foot above the base of the plant.

The spadex and spathe protect the tiny flowers set deeply inside this flower-shaped organ. The spathe erupts

How to Grow a Dragon Arum

The breathless gardener will stand in awe of this unique plant. Dragon arum flower may look like a pampered tropical lily but it is actually native to the Balkans, Greece, Crete, the Aegean’s, and temperate to cool parts of the Mediterranean. As such, it can withstand and thrive in United States Department of Agriculture zones 5 to 8.

In spite of the rich and colorful names, the plant is rather pedestrian in its likes. The stunning flowers start from a tuber that is planted at least 4 inches below the surface of the soil in fall. Make sure the soil is well draining and loose.

You can choose a semi-shady location or a sunny one, but in full sun they will need more water. Give them average water so the soil stays moderately damp several inches down, but make sure the area isn’t soggy, as this will likely rot the tuber.

In early spring, the plant begins to coil up from the earth in a cone shape. Flowers come at the end of summer and then the plant dies back in fall.

Dragon Arum Care

These plants grow wild in their native regions. You can find them near ponds, rivers and dappled forest edges. They are remarkably resilient and will come back again year after year, either from spreading tubers or from seed. In fact, if you water the plant regularly, it will need little additional dragon arum care.

The “flower” gives off a noxious odor when ripe for up to 3 days, so plant it at the edge of the garden and away from open windows and doors. To prevent seedlings from popping up everywhere, gather up the large red seeds before they plant themselves. Use gloves, as the plant is toxic. Or conversely, let this shocking-in-every-way plant take over a corner of the garden and invite friends in to gaze in wonder at this fascinating lily and, perhaps, harvest one for themselves.
