Hello Helmut, Peter and Jani,
Helmuts report (below) clarifies what I am trying to say. The plant that he
is calling X. 'violacia" (w/ dark green leaf stalks, and with green leaves
and with a purple hue over the leaves) sure sounds like to 'new' one from
Cen. America which I reported in my earlier post, and Eduardo ID`d it from a
photo sent in as NOT being X. violacium, but another 'good' species like X.
sagittifolium, I don`t remember exactly which.
The second which Helmut is calling X. 'nigra' with the very dark purple
petioles I THINK is what we have being called X. violacium! BUT---until
Eduardo gets his review of the cultivated forms/species of Xanthosoma
completed, we shall always remain in doubt!
Helmut, please if at all possible post photos of these plants to the aroid-l
and we can all take a look at them, and perhaps Dr.Goncalves can give us his
Hi Peter, Hi Jani
I´ve once learned, there is a difference beetween Xanthosoma violacea and
X. nigra, the first with green leaf stalks, green
leaves and a purple hue over the green, the latter with very dark purple
petioles. Is that correkt?
Some of our X. nigra are regularely flowering in our greenhouse in Vienna.
Next time I´ll take a picture.
