Description

Pinellia pedatisecta, Chinese Green Dragon, is native to a large area of China where it grows in shaded woodland and forested slopes and valleys. It is a very easy-to-grow Aroid and an ideal first plant if you havn't yet discovered how wonderful and rewarding the Aroids can be. It has very distinctive and exotic-looking pedate foliage with long lanceolate leaflets that each have many pale-coloured veins. The spathe is a pale green colour and resembles a folded leaf in the shape of a boat or canoe and the pale yellow spadix is extremely elongated and serpentine and usually arises vertically from the spathe. Pinellia pedatisecta is suited for woodland conditions in cooler shady situations and an ideal Aroid for the UK and northern Europe. It is very vigourous and will quickly form a good-sized clump. Mature plants self-seed prolifically.
