  Pinellia hybrid
From: grsjr at juno.com (George R Stilwell, Jr.) on 1997.01.14 at 07:35:09(124)
Pam Bagget reports, in the Jan '97 issue of The Hardy Plant Soc.,
Mid-Atlantic Group, that a hybrid Pinellia, P. 'Polly Spout', is
available from We-Du Nursery.

" Woodland gardeners will be interested in Pinellia 'Poly Spout', also
from We-Du Nurseries. A hybrid which appeared in their nursery several
years ago, it is probably a cross between P. tripartita and
P.pedatisecta. As members of the Arum family, pinellias produce
intriguing spathes ... for several months of the year. 'Poly Spout' has
an erect green spathe, purplish inside, with protruding green spadix ...
It grows to nearly 2 feet in height. I've saved the best news for last:
while most Pinellia are prolific seeders, 'Poly Spout' has proven to be
sterile. Zone 7b, at least."

I question the Zone 7b. Both parents grow well in 7a and probably in 6
for that matter. To top it off, We-Du is certainly not in Zone 7b.

OK, Aroid collectors, have at it.

Pinellias tripartita, tripartita `Atropurpurea', and pedatisecta
seem to be perfectly hardy here in zone 5 (I've overwintered
tripartita in containers, in hoophouses, frozen solid as a rock,
and had virtually no losses). Haven't tried P. cordata that way
yet - too few, too pretty. But I will...

'Polly Spout' wintered over here in Dover last year (zone 7a).

Dear Aroid-lers,
All three easy Pinellias (pedatisecta, ternata, and tripartita) grow and
seed abundantly in my north-facing woodland in Wyoming, a north side suburb
of Cincinnati, Zone 6. Pinellia "Poly Spout" joined them 16 months ago and
also grew, flowered, and prospered. However, in contrast to some earlier
reports, Amorphophallus konjac did not make it outside several years ago.
Perhaps my plants came from a much warmer growing region.

Sorry, I don't have a We-Du Nurseries catalog anymore. I found them to be
too expensive for what you get.

Watch out aroiders! I have a Pinellia species in my garden at home that is
the worst weed I have ever encountered. I can't even share divisions of my
other plants because I'm afraid I'll spread it to others.

Shelly,
I guess you feel for Pinellia the same way I feel for Gonatopus.

Shelley,

You just have the wrong species of Pinellia. They're not all weeds.
