an american friend who isn't subcribed looks for an id.....

"Bernhard - I finally found this set of pics. They are of an unknown aroid I got many years ago from China. It was sent from Chen Yi. She was a big Chinese seller in the 1990's. This plant is fully hardy to at least -13F. The leaf looks a lot like Pinellia but the flower does not. I'm sending pictures of the leaves, flower and seeds. I'm hoping you can post this on Aroid-L for identification.

Thanks, Tim"

Maybe someone can help.....

Happy id-ing, Bernhard.

It looks like Sauromatum horsfieldii. But I've never heard it can resist
such frost.

It IS Sauromatum horsfieldii and it comes in many shapes and other
characteristics, so also in frost resistence sometimes.
