Amorphophallus kiusianus has proven to be one of the most durable and hardiest of the Amorphophallus species, rivaling Amorphophallus konjac. In early spring, the 3' tall green- and white-speckled flower stalk is topped with a cute 6" tall green- and white-spotted vase (that's vaaazze for you rich folks). Shooting out from the center of the vase is the spadix, like an 8" long purple-tipped spear (must not be shown to kids under 18!). After flowering and then resting for a year, a solitary 4' tall fleshy petiole emerges from the tuber, topped with a giant, shredded, umbrella-type leaf. Although the tuber offsets slowly, Amorphophallus kiusianus is one of the few self-fertile amorphophallus species (it can have both sex and babies without a partner)...probably more acceptable to our blue state customers. Our plants are probably a couple of years from flowering size.
