Several years ago, I got two bulbs from Jim Waddick, Typhonium divaricatum
and T. giganteum. Both have flowered regularly, and upon further research,
the RHS lists T. blumei as a synonym. Also, the Japanese picture aroid
book that many of us purchased has a photo of T. blumei, which is the same
plant. Jim tells me that he originally identified it from a photo in
Iconographia. It looks like it's pretty reliably hardy here in zone 7

As for T. giganteum, Jim tells me that several folks have instead called
it T. giraldii. RHS uses T. giganteum v. giraldii. This one has been
reliable in zone 7 also, and I think Jim also indicated it was reliable in
zone 6.

Any help to clear these taxonomic issues would be most
appreciated....Wilbert, et al.
