This native to high elevations in Nepal and neighboring Tibet makes a stunning plant even without the flower. The 3’+ tall reddish stem is topped with a three-part leaf, similar to A. speciosum. In good conditions, the leaf can reach 3′ in width. In late spring, the flower stalk emerges to nearly 2′ tall with a large, dark purple and white striped hood which ends in a thin red-purple tail. Inside the hood, the thin black-purple spadix stands out against the “pulpit windows.” Speaking of tails, take a peek in the pulpit window for some cheap thrills.
