This delightful little aroid is a real charmer for the woodland rock garden or trough container. Held atop shiny black stems are rubbery, velvet, dark green, arrowhead-shaped leaves, each prominently highlighted by a wide silver stripe that follows the veins. In late summer, the flowering peduncle (stalk) arises from the ground to stand just above the 6" tall foliage. The miniature Jack-in-the-pulpit-like flower boasts a long tongue (spadix) that curls just above the foliage. Pinellia cordata does produce tiny bulbils on the leaves but is not weedy like other members of the genus, particularly Pinellia ternata and Pinellia pedatisecta.
