Yucky Weed in my front yard

Christina_154October 4, 2012

I really need to know what this is?? Has anyone ever seen it before? If so how do I kill it??? It came up a few months ago but was only one shoot, this time it came up and there were two.....it looks disgusting and it concerns me because of my kids and my dogs

It's a stinkhorn fungus. They smell bad.

But they are not harmful to your kids, dogs, you, your plants, or anything else. Stinkhorns are an important part of a natural recycling system.
