(aka: Amorphophallus odoratus) Similar to Amorphophallus yunnanensis, Amorphophallus dunnii boasts a peculiar flower stalk that reaches 2' tall, topped with an 8-10" ice cream cone-like flower. The vase (spathe) looks like a green and white speckled cone with a "zipped-open" front...for better exposure. The creamy white, bulbous sexual appendage (spadix) sits like a...well, you know...a sexual appendage inside the red-bottomed spathe. According to amorphophallus guru Wilbert Hetterscheid, the inflorescence of Amorphophallus dunnii smells of fresh carrots, but then who could trust Wilbert's nose after smelling so many amorphophallus? The 2' tall speckled stalk is topped in summer with typical amorphophallus foliage. Amorphophallus dunnii is a fast-offsetting species and an easy one for beginners.
