First I don't know if there are more than one type of Voodoo lily, but I don't know how hardy they are.

This one is Conutum, anyone know.

Thanks in advance.

Arum cornutum is an old name for Voodoo Lily. We most commonly now hear the name Sauromatum venosum, but I think it's been moved to Typhonium venosum. At any rate, they're all three the same thing.

Zone hardiness

Oh, didn't answer your question. I think they're reliably hardy to Zone 7, probably Zone 6 with protection.

Thanks guys for the fast responses.


RE: Hardiness of Voodoo Lily??

My Voodoo lilies remain outdoors always. Also temperatures below zero ( C) do not affect them.
only the flower remains somewhat smaller compared with indoor growing.

RE: Hardiness of Voodoo Lily??

Mine were planted outside about 5 years ago and have come back up every year, I'm in zone 7A.
The flowers have a disgusting smell to them which I was not aware of untill this spring. I guess that attracts the flys I saw that were all over them.
