I bought a mature tuber (about 5 cm of diameter) in 2007.
It began to grow in the beginning of May.
On 15 May it bloomed. It was 60 cm tall.
It had only female flowers and one sterile.
On 1st June the leaves (always 2) were fully unfolded. The underside was a little reddish.


In 2008 it produced a male inflorescence, smaller than in 2007.
It didn't survive the next winter in zone 7a.
