King Stropharia

Stropharia rugosoannulata

Rare fungi but plentiful in the Garden

During Wales Fungus Day, held here in October 2013, experienced fungi experts noticed lots of this large fungus in our woodchip mulched flower beds and around the Ghost Forest.

It had never been recorded in Wales before and rarely in England. As we create all of our woodchip onsite, it’s a mystery how this got here. In the USA, it’s considered a culinary delicacy.
