Just In! Voodoo Lily!

(sauromatus venosum)

The flower head is the first sign of life.  It looks like life from another planet but it actually derives from the tropics of Africa and Asia.  A member of the Philodendron family, the Voodoo Lily 's stalk stands 3' tall and only 1" wide.  As it unfurls, the inside is patterned with a rich violet and yellow color.  After the bloom disappears a giant- hand shaped leaf that is 2' across emerges from the bulb on a mottled green and black stem.

It is a very exotic looking plant that will make a great conversation piece in your garden.
