Dear All;
	While oohing over the range of flower(spathe) color, I am 
reminded more of the lovely size and boldness of the foliage which is 
both more obvious than the flowers and much longer lasting. This 
aroid does have very large round cabbage like foliage that can stay 
in very good shape for a long growth period. The flowers are fairly 
small and fleeting in comparison.

	Seeing a patch in full growth is very impressive;  like a 
nice architectural Hosta it has 'presence'.
