50 (70)cm, Voodoo Lily belongs despite it's common name to the aroid family (Araceae) and not the lily family (Liliaceae). It is native from East Africa to India. It has a large and broad umbrella-like, single (rarely two or more) leaf on a brownish-red speckled stalk, which appears after flowering. It makes an unusual "flower": a narrow, purple spathe yellow inside with reddish brown spots and a tall wine red spadix. For any humus rich, very well drained soil in a partially shaded to sunny spot. During dormancy in winter keep bulbs completely dry at a minimum of some 5°C. May be grown in the garden throughout the year in climatic warmer regions in central Europe (e.g. Rhine valley and Atlantic coast) with some good winter protection (e.g. a thick dry mulch layer). 4cm ø coms will need another growing season to reach possible flowering size. This species is sometimes offered under the false name "Arum cornutum" from some Dutch wholesale bulb companies and later resold under the same completely wrong name from several retail companies. Those companies are obviously very resistant to accurate taxonomy! IV-V.
