Spathantheum orbignyanum

A tuberous aroid that I bought when I saw it at Cotswold Garden Flowers. It turns out to be a little known member of the group from Bolivia, from 1000m to 3000m altitude. Hopefully it will be hardy enough to survive in the greenhouse, and get large enough to flower in time.

Remarkable flowers. I didn't detect any significant scent, but I didn't try too hard.
(Thanks to David Scherberich for pointing out that this is a Gorgonidium, probably G.intermedium).
