Dracunculus Vulgaris

My Dragon Arum returned, really early as usual, but I must say I'm stunned. The bulbs continue to hang in there despite the fact that it has been extremely unhappy in various locations over the past few years. This plant died shortly and never grew the entire summer.

I plan to dig these bulbs up as soon as possible and plant them somewhere in the backyard where it can get full sun. Right now, it gets only shade (to beat the summer heat) until evening comes.

I hope the new location I put it in will make it happy enough to bloom. The only reason I got this plant was to see it bloom!
