Amorphophallus albus is a little-known but easy-to-grow voodoo lily, native to the Yunnan Province of China. The stalks of Amorphophallus albus are either solid green or green with grey spots, and topped with a glossy green leaf. Amorphophallus albus is a rapidly offsetting species that forms a nice 2' wide patch (in 5 years) in the woodland garden. In spring, just as the leaf emerges, it is joined by a 1' tall flower stalk with a 6-8" tall flower perched atop. Each flower resembles a large ivory shell showcasing a white, cigar-like at the tip and white at the base. For a raucous time in the garden, try interplanting with Alstroemeria 'Princess Monica'!
