Symplocarpus nipponicus / Himezazensou ヒメザゼンソウ

 
Symplocarpus nipponicus is a perennial with short rhizomes, occurring in damp forest edges or wetlands in mountainous regions. Radical leaves, with long petioles, are 10-20cm in length, 7-12cm in width, in the shape of an ovate-like- cordate or oblong. Inflorescences (spadices) emerge from the bases of the plants and make themselves covered 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.
