This collectors edition form of Pinellia tripartita comes from Japan via collector Ozzie Johnson. Each of the light green tripartite leaves is variegated creamy yellow. Some leaves will be all yellow, some half and half, some streaky yellow and some all green. The unstable variegation pattern is what makes this a truly fascinating plant. The sexually explicit, pitcher-like flowers that are produced all summer can be equally as variegated. Any solid green shoots should be removed so as to not overpower the variegated divisions. Moist woodland soils are best.
