ELEPHANT FOOT YAM
(1mABCDe) Amorphophallus muelleri
Elephant Foot will be a great talking piece as it goes through its strange life cycle. The one metre stem is patterned like a carpet snake skin and unfurls into an interesting leaf arrangement. At around its third year it will push up a thick short stem which produces a lovely pink arum flower. After flowering bright red fruit is produced on the spadix. There is a seed inside each fruit..Elephant Foot dies off in autumn each year & comes back in spring. Dappled shade to full sun in a moist position. These are seedlings.
…..Priced at $29 (380 Parries)
PS Amorphophallus species produce some of the worlds most amazing flowering arrangements.
