voodoo lily

jennidAugust 8, 2007

I have voodoo lilies (100+) and want to give some away. Can I dig them up now or do I have to wait for the foliage to die back. In the past The foliage was gone by now. But this year after the Mother bloomed. Over 100 little ones started coming up every where. Any idea on what to do. I don't want to kill any of them but I don't want 100+ bloomimg next year My neibors would kill me.

What kind of voodoo lilies do you have, and what zone are you in? I have been looking for these all summer, but the only place I saw them was on ebay for $20, and I wasn't sure they'd live. I moved from Houston to Little Rock and want to put them in the ground here, so I need the kind that will make it in zone 7 and not rot if it is wet and cold in winter. I was looking at Amorphophallus konjac, but I'll be interested in any hardy ones. Would you be interested in trading for any of these or for a SASE if they grow in zone 7?

I planted a voodoo lily for the first time last year. The small white and pink jack-in-the-pulpit type flower bloomed first and then the beautiful, palm tree with a speckled trunk looking burst of foliage grew to about 2 feet. This year I have nine (that I've counted so far!) popping up in my three flower gardens! A few of them even have a second "trunk" growing from the original one! These plants are an average of two feet high and the foliage on top spreads to about a foot. The ones partially shaded seem to grow bigger. So far this year I have not had a single flower, can you tell me why?
