Dramatic exotic pink inflorescence with branched umbrella-like foliage held aloft on a single, very long speckled petiole. Amorphophallus only blooms when mature and even so it doesn't bloom every year. It takes a few years and plenty of feeding before the plant reaches flowering size but in the meantime it is still prized for it's highly architectural foliage.
Grow in fertile, well-drained soil in sun or part shade, plenty of feed!

Eventual mature plant size :
Height 1m

Spread 60cm
