Description Fine Print
 
A weird and wonderful plant from the Arum family, Amorphophallus paeoniifolius, is one of the most dramatic of the genus with a crumpled, burgundy spathe and a creamy-white central spadix. The stems are beautifully mottled with cream and green. The bulb will go dormant by fall. Bring the pot inside to a cool, dry place and do not water during dormancy. Begin watering when you see the spike of the tightly-furled stem poking out of the soil in spring. Photo: Wikipedia.
