Pinellia x 'Polly Spout'

Green Dragon

Plant Type:

SHADE PERENNIALS

Pinellia x 'Polly Spout' - This prized Green Dragon is a blusher! Pinellia tripartita 'Atropurpurea' x Pinellia pedatisecta with its pastel pink zone inside the spathe creates a foil for the light green jutting spadix. 'Polly Spout' flowers from spring to fall. The large medium green leaves atop 18 to 24-inch stems set in groups of five. Each leaflet is noticeably veined, broad and flame-shaped. This is a sterile hybrid and won't seed about. Dick Weaver of We-Du Natives spotted this treasure. Named for his home town of Polly Spout, NC, this pinky Green Dragon will slowly create more of its own kind and in time will be a most cherished element in the little town of your garden. Fertile, moisture-retentive ground in shade, dappled to part sun. Potted tuber(s) from division.
