Amorphophallus ‘Mary Sizemore’
From the breeding program of Cyrille Claudel in Germany
Amorphophallus albus x Amorphophallus konjac 'Nightstick'
The plant was bred on purpose by crossing Amorphophallus albus (female) with Amorphophallus konjac 'Nightstick'. This plant was selected for its outstanding beauty and growing properties.This particular seedling is named in honor of Mary Sizemore a good friend and outstanding aroids collector.
Being a hybrid between two distinct species it merges several characteristics in an unique combination. It has outstanding growing properties and the spathe is exceptionally wavy/undulate. The petiole and the peduncle are bright green with occasional dark spots very similar to the female parent, A. albus. Tubers are round and slightly disciform, reaching a weight up to 1800 gram forming rhizomatous offsets. The leaf looks very similar to a giant version of A. albus but the wavy inflorescence is absolutely unique.
