An alien creature comes to mind when the 60cm. (2?) tall, narrow flower spathe appears in early summer. Its a weird combination of rich violet spots and yellow. This is followed later by gorgeous, giant 60 - 90cm (2'-3'), hand shaped leaves on a mottled 60cm (2') green and black stem. All this ends with a unique ?space object? seed head. It likes partial shade. Grow in large pots; store cool and dry indoors for winter. Ht. 60 - 90cm (2'-3'). Hardy to zone 7.
