Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
This collection is from the species elevational limit in the confluence of Tibet, Arunachal Pradesh and Bhutan. This species is well-represented in gardens but from areas with much less cold exposure. Paired pedate leaves of splayed finger-like leaflets and sizable green flower standing proud above with an even prouder erect spadix. The showy red fruit in late summer and fall extends the pride. A durable and easy species in the garden.
