Pinellia tripartita 'Dragon Tails'

Pinellia 'Dragon Tails' has tri-lobed, lance shaped green leaves with many yellow splashes and yellow variegation along with upright, lime green and yellow splashed hooded flowers with a tall whip rising from the top of the flower. The variegation is quite variable with some plants being completely yellow, others half and half, and others yellow splashed. They are similar to Arisaema (jack-in-the-pulpit) but bloom continuously all summer long. They will produce many self-sown seedlings around the mother plant. These plantlets are easy to remove and transplant, or allow them to spread forming a dense colony of brilliant foliage in the woodland garden.

Height: 8 - 12" Spacing: 12 - 15" apart
Light: Part shade to full shade Soil: Humus-rich, moist but well-drained, woodland
Bloom Time: Summer Zones: 5 - 9
