A striking perennial tuber that is used as a cut flower. The attractive white ‘flower’ is actually a spathe which serves as a shielding bract enclosing a finger-like yellow spine which bears hundreds of minute, individual flowers. The spine is creamy white and becomes bright yellow as the flowers mature. The spathe is displayed on a tall stem about 1.2m above the clump of lush, arrow-shaped leaves.
