Notes:

We have no idea what this is. There are a half dozen bulbs, shaped about size of a golf ball, white, and they eventually shoot up this off stalk-like thing. Never seen them before. They are sort of ooozy like a mushroom. I dug up all the bulbs I could find and put them in a plastic bag but am curious as to what they are. We did not plant them.

    Maybe a species of stinkhorn mushroom (Phallaceae ). Possible the dog stinkhorn (Mutinus caninus)? Check out Walter’s link for more information. Best wishes!
