Default If you like unusual plants.....

Hello friends. I just noticed this section on LG. One of my other hobbies is gardening. For the last 20 years or so, my partner and I have grown various varieties of the species, Amorphophallus. They are QUITE an unusual group of plants. Here is Ohio, we grow them outside from May through October. During this season, they grow as a small tree, resembling a miniature palm tree. We then bring them inside and store the bulbs bare root through the winter. It is in March and April that the magic begins, when they bloom. Enjoy the pics. Paul

They are very unusual plants indeed! Amazing though, they're so big, incredible.
