Amorphophallus konjac 'Nightstick' is a 1994 Plant Delights/JLBG introduction of a special black-stalked selection that we acquired in 1992 from aroid collector Tom McLamb, and subsequently named. It's been decades since we've had enough to share, so we're delighted to have our stock levels built back up. The 3' tall, jet black stem, which emerges in mid-June, is a thing of beauty, topped with the extremely dark green palm-like leaf. When the tuber develops enough food reserves, you'll enjoy a flower stalk instead of a leaf stalk, occurring usually in early May (NC).
