I feel honored to have evoked such intellectual discourse on what I
supposed, was a simple question. Apparently, in order to find an answer, we
had to leave the family Araceae and venture to a foreign family, Liliaceae.
I don't think the Trillium flower bears to much resemblance to an "Aroid"
flower. Ron P.S. I still hope someone can give me the names of the
tubers that were sold at the Fairchild show by the Thai man.
