A dramatic species with large green spathes that are heavily blotched and stained on their interior in velvety black-purple and ivory, and sometimes pink. The spadix is sooty black and the broad, green leaves are attractively marbled. Hardy, free-flowering and handsome it has all the attributes of an excellent garden plant … except it has one draw back … its smell. For a short period during flowering it produces an evil odour but this dissipates and soon becomes barely noticeable. Nevertheless one needs to bear this in mind when considering a planting site.
