Info

This rare Chinese aroid is a must for collectors of the weird and wonderful. In early summer, the long, nearly white petioles emerge from the tuber to produce 1' long, green, arrowhead-shaped leaves. In midsummer, a truly bizarre 10" tall flower spike emerges on a short stalk at ground level. Each inflorescence is an upright, light purple pitcher with a velvety black lining. From the interior of the pitcher emerges the black "presidential" spadix. The giant voodoo lily does have a memorable fragrance for about a day...how else would an insect be lured to have sex in there?
