This tropical voodoo lily has a really unusual flower. The short (8" tall) but stunnning inflorescense resembles a heavily ruffled purple trimmed toilet seat (I'm not kidding folks!). Emerging from the center of the "seat" is a...well let's just say it looks like someone dropped a Viagra pill in the toilet bowl! After the flower, a fleshy green stalk emerges to 2' topped by a single amorphophallus like leaf.
