This native to India and Nepal has proven to be one of the easiest to grow and most reliable amorphophallus in our garden. You'll love the 3' tall, fleshy, tan and black patterned petiole...especially if you are a closet petiolephile. At the top of each petiole sits a radial leaf resembling a miniature palm tree. For us, Amorphophallus napalensis offsets very slowly and does so very close to the original tuber. Once the tuber is large enough to flower, an 18" stalk will emerge in late June and be topped with a cute, artificial-looking green shell with a beige anatomical member emerging from the base...guaranteed to be the hit at your next aroid party!
