|A tuberous perennial with large hooded spathes.
|Underplanting of roses and shrubs.
|Plant in a sheltered, shady location in soil that is moist but free-draining. It is best to plant them deep, 45 cm, as this will protect tubers through cold temperatures. Thick layers of mulch are advisable and during dry periods, especially in North America, watering may be required. Plants may be late to appear so be cautious and note locations when working in the garden in the spring.
|Leaves made up of three ovate leaflets. White, hooded spathes with a green tube.
|Loam, chalk and sand.
|The leaves are about 30 cm tall when fully grown, with three lobes.
