Arrow-shaped leaves emerge in fall, stay green until spring then wither away in early summer, followed by exotic calla-like blooms. In late summer, spikes of bright orange berries grace the plants followed by a new flush of foliage in the fall.

After the first year only half planted came up. The second years 75% had strong lovely foliage and grew to about 12 height. They did bloom that year, but the blooms were flimsy and pale green. No berries that year. This year the foliage is HUGE with 24 height and new leaves up to 16:long (very cool), but again the blooms (which are twice the size) are pale green and practically invisible. I have seen no color other than green from this plant so far. This is obviously not what I was hoping for at the entry to my home.

Nice plants all corms grew into plants and made it through the winter. Leaves came up dark and glossy. Only one has bloomed yet. It was a bit of a disappointment because the flower was white rather than spotted. very strange. waiting for the orange candycorn to form.

I've had these plants for a few years. Each year they seem to surprise me with the different stages. Make sure you plant these flowers where you can see them every day or you will miss them going though the different stages.

I read all the reviews. For the people who had problems don't for get you can get replacements free. No reason not to rebuy them. Mine do great. this year they rebloomed 2 times. I have them under evergreens and they seem to move as the trees grow. I'll use the powder soap as one person wrote. Must be in shade. Have had them for 5 or more years. Great plant.

This was my VERY favorite flower in Colorado. We recently moved to Iowa where I am planning to feature these incredible flowers again.The leaves are gorgeous and the flowers are truly show stoppers! They spread and are beautiful all season.One tip: sprinkle a little powdered soap into the paper-like encasement when the flowers are forming to keep the earwigs at bay.

This plant never dies but only produced the candle for two years, but I have it in full sun. I am going to move it to shade this year and try it, I have had it for four years now. it was stunningly beautiful when the candle was on it.
