Product Details
This has one of the largest flowers of the genus, only marginally smaller than A. griffithii. As usual the foliage is the first to emerge in early summer, being wrapped around the flower. Foliage on this species is trifoliate, usually one stem per bulb but occasionally two, each leaflet has a broad side and a narrow one with the whole leaflet edged rich red. Veins are quite visible and the whole leaf hangs pendulously like three fingers up to 35 cms long each - very attractive. Flowers are deep red, open mouthed with a deep red spadix and a spadix appendage which can reach several feet long, this usually comes out draped over the foliage. A must for the collection.
