Amorphophallus konjac 'Nightstick' is a 1994 Plant Delights Nursery/Juniper Level Botanic Garden introduction of a special black-stalked selection that we acquired in 1992 from aroid collector Tom McLamb, and subsequently named and introduced it in 1994. It's been 24 years (1996) since we've had enough to share, so we're delighted for it to finally make a return engagement in the catalog. 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).
