Low-growing woodland aroid. Mat of glossy arrow-shaped leaves, with purple-and-white mouse flowers held beneath. Requires drainage during cold dormant season. I acquired one bareroot plant by mail order several years ago, and was sure it had not survived, because I hadn't noticed it since. But then all of a sudden, there it was, with a flower even (which I damaged, unfortunately - next year hopefully a photo of an undamaged flower).
We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
