We are very pleased to introduce the variegated Pinellia 'Free Tibet', developed by aroid enthusiast Bob Lauf in collaboration with noted monocot geneticist Dr. Janice Zale. Bob crossed two forms of Pinellia tripartita, Pinellia 'Dragon Tails' and Pinellia 'Atropurpurea', to come up with a plant with yellow and green irregularly variegated foliage that's topped all summer with 18" tall flower spikes with maroon spathe interiors. We've had Pinellia 'Free Tibet' on trial since 2010 and have been more impressed each season, so we decided it's time to share.
