A new addition to my garden, ‘Green Heart’ begins its inflorescence with a pale green spathe and a dark spadix. As it develops, the spathe gradually turns whiter. When it begins to mature the spathe is pure white. It then has a bright pink spadix with a yellow tip. It is really interesting to watch the different stages.
I have recently discovered that it turns leaf green as it ages.
