  [aroid-l] Xanthosoma "roseum"
From: "Eduardo Goncalves" edggon at hotmail.com> on 2003.01.27 at 00:59:22(9887)
Dear Susan,

The only species that fits this description is Xanthosoma robustum, that
is, in my opinion, a synonim of Xanthosoma roseum. It ranges from Mexico to
Guatemala and probably even more to the south. It is widely available in
Florida as Xanthosoma sagittifolium ("malanga-blanca")!!!! In fact, I wasn?t
able to find a real Xanthosoma sagittifolium growing in Florida!!!

Very best wishes,
