It is a lily of some type, but not 100% sure which one.

I think it is a voodoo lily.

Looks like an Arum, not sure which one. All of it will be poisonous though grin

Dragon flower?

The voodoo lily is related to the rotting corpse flower. I am going to guess it doesn't smell too pretty.

Tell that is too funny...

We have just give the OP 3 different names for the same flower grin

There's an app you scan your picture to and it tells you what it is.

DM thinks it looks like a hellebore. She's sitting with me, I would have just said purple.

Long growing up we had a great big beast of a hedge-thing that grew on the wall of one part of the house. It grew remarkably fast and you'd wake up one morning to find it had sprouted new creepers that now stuck out a meter long and hit you as you walked past.

I asked my parents what type of plant it was, and my father replied a triffid. I accepted this as gospel and would nod sagely when people asked what it was and reply 'ah yes, it's a triffid. Terribly big, isn't it?'

I only found out 15 years later, in my twenties, that a triffid is not actually a real plant.

Dracucunen vulgaris methinks.

They do indeed stink! I have just chopped the flowers off mine because the dog was going mad with the smell .
