Sorry this plant is not available at the moment. Please try again later or select an alternative plant.
A wonderfully architectural plant from one of our wild seed collections gathered from a moist bank in the Long-Jen Valley eastern Taiwan in 1999. Arising from a central tuberous rootstock, forming a short trunk bearing large rounded to ovate grey-green leaves on strong long grooved petioles with a relatively small white spathed inflorescence. Forming long stolons, which generate new plants on contact with moist soil. Best grown in a humus rich soil that does not dry out, in either sun or shade protecting the plant with a deep layer of debris to prevent freezing over the winter. Large plants.
