I'm getting ready to send some tubers of this Biarum to Al and wonder if I
need to ship them in damp peat or not.  This species is, I think, a bit of
an acquired taste, but definitely a distinctive little aroid.  The spathes
are such dark purple they are almost black.  Mine, at least, don't get more
than a few inches tall.


I didn't even realize it was blooming until I noticed something odd and
realized the slugs had been at it.  As is mentioned on the Wiki, the spathes
are the color of the soil and the leaves hardly lighter.
