Bluish-green arrowhead-shaped leaves with wide, irregular areas splashed with gray-green, cream and white. Very unique as the tips of the leaves are fused into a cup sporting a long tail. The flowers sport a yellow white spadix during the summer. It's easy to grow in a bright shady position with rich moist soil. Average size from 2 to 3 feet. However, outdoors in a tropical environment, it can grow 4 to 5 feet high. Remains evergreen unless chilled. It's best to overwinter indoors in colder climates. Grow outdoors in USDA zones 9 - 11. Native of the tropical Americas. Araceae
