A rare Chinese aroid that is a must for collectors of the weird and wonderful. Long, nearly white petioles emerge from the tuber to produce 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, with a nasty pungent aroma that lasts a day!
Native to China.
Mulch with a layer of bark in very cold winters.
