An easy to grow, spectacular tropical-looking native plant that is great for containers or small ponds. Large arrowhead leaves are held on 18″ stems. Greenish-white spathe and spadix flowers appear in late spring and then form green seedpods that ripen to shiny, metallic green seeds-very attractive! Requires sun or partial shade.
