From high elevations in Thailand comes the little-known species, Amorphophallus thaiensis. The 18" tall petiole, which ranges in color from speckled olive-brown to rusty-red, is topped with a single leaf. This unusual fall-flowering species is complemented in September with a 10" tall stalk topped with a greenish-pink spathe. If you dare to peek inside, you'll find a short but well-formed little stiffie (spadix)...pink at the tip and white at the base. In a dry protected site, it has proven to be winter hardy in our trials.
