I paste here the notes by Tony  about this Hybrid:

Pinellia 'Polly Spout' is a seedling that Dick Weaver (founder of We-Du
Nursery) found in his garden back in the early 1990's...a hybrid of P.
tripartita 'Atropurpurea' and P. pedatisecta.  Dick named it after the
town in NC where We-Du is located. To my knowledge, it is the only
sterile form of pinellia, and while it is very vigorous, it doesn't
offset very rapidly.  It puts on a tremendous floral show all summer and
the flowers are most certainly red-flushed, although not as dark as P.
tripartita 'Atropurpurea'.   I hope this helps.
