This strange aroid for equally strange gardeners has three-lobed glossy green leaves that reach 12" tall. In the spring, the spathes unfurl to reveal a lovely purple interior from which emerges a whip-like tongue. As the flowers mature, the stalks fall over, dumping a few seeds for future generations...but not becoming weedy like some of the other pinellia species.
