Help me ID this aroid

tsiawdApril 18, 2007

Need some help identifying this aroid. It was a hitchhiker with another plant I purchased. It grows fairly quick, has a very different leaf, and has grown into a clump. All growth comes from a central point. The flower has a sweet fragrance. Any help would be great.

The plant looks to be a species of Dracunculus; the look is the same as the Dracunculus vulgaris, except that the inflorescence on yours is different in color. Otherwise, I am confident of the ID.

I saw a couple of pictures of Xanthosoma wendlandii that resembled the plant and the inflorescense. Do you think it could be this? Thanks for your response.

Are you certain the leaf and influorescence are from the same plant?? The leaf is a dead ringer for Typhonium venosum, but the influorescence is obviously not that at all. My Dracunculus leaf and T. venosum leaf look nothing alike, but there is so much variability it can all be confusing for me. Best of luck :o) Dan

The leaf and the inflorescense are from the same plant. There is another inflorescense getting ready to open now. Thanks
