Classic woodland plant that produces purplish- green hooded spadix. Flowering plants initially produce only male flowers, but become hermaphroditic as they further age. Most plants in a colony will become dormant by mid-summer, but the mature, hermaphroditic flowering plant will produce a cluster of red berries in mid to late summer which becomes visible as the spathe withers. Roots contain calcium oxalate and are poisonous.

Care:

Nursery grown woodland flower - Not collected from the wild. Best grown in fertile, medium to wet soil in part shade to full shade. Needs constantly moist soil rich in organic matter. Does poorly in heavy clay soils. Pretty easy to grow and appreciated more for its form than flower.

Other Attributes:
Deer Resistant
