Discovery of rare and unusual tropical plant growing on campus!

Groundbreaking news!

We have discovered this rare and unusual tropical plant growing on Streatham Campus! It is an Dracunculus vulgaris (voodoo lily) which can normally only be seen growing in glasshouses!

It is native to North East India and the Himalayan region and the much branch umbrella like foliage is held aloft on a single long speckled stalk.
