Symplocarpus nipponicus / Himezazensou ヒメザゼンソウ

 
Symplocarpus nipponicus is a perennial with short rhizomes in damp forest edges or wetlands in mountainous regions. Radical leaves, with long petioles, are 10-20cm long, 7-12cm wide, in the shape of an ovate-like- cordate or oblong. Inflorescences (spadices) emerge from the plants' bases and cover themselves with dark purple-brown, fleshy spathes (approximately 4 cm long, in the shape of something like a canoe). Many small yellow-brown flowers bloom in the spadices in the spathes. Bloom time: May-June.
