I can enter a search string like “weird orange plant garden” and a forum hop and a couple of links later I’m at this page, which shows me exactly what’s growing there. I killed one last week, thinking it was plastic or styrofoam, not a living thing. This week when another showed up, I tried to figure out what it was. It’s so vibrant a color as to seem unnatural, and I can definitely attest to the aptness of the name “stinkhorn”. What the page doesn’t answer is if it’s ok to let this thing grow in among my tomatoes. I usually enjoy the sight of mushrooms in my yard, so I guess I’ll just leave it be. Love the fact that weird things I’ve never seen before, things that seem impossible or artificial, can grow in my yard.
