All of the Amorphophallus have an attraction about them, but the majority are tropical, and get rather peevish in cold weather. This one comes from China
and is proving to be fairly hardy in the USA. The rhizomatous growth is also unusual, and there is a possibility that it will make a good herbaceous plant
for the garden.
I got mine from Bob Brown at Cotswold Garden Flowers and although I have only had it for a few month it has continued in leaf so I hope the rootstock has
been growing stronger at the same time.

It has increased substantially through the year, and I have tried a small division to see how obliging it is going to be. I am a bit worried that
it will sulk if the tubers are disturbed.
