Wow, I did not think that this was possible ! Have you more
informations for Colocasia and Alocasia species please
? Because I have no references on those which could pass a winter
underground in zone 7. Amorphophallus, I was not sure but I
thought to try but near the house to be sheltered.
For Philodendron bipinnatifidum I am
very surprised because I thought that the plant was only available for
zones 9 to 11 ?
I am located in the north east of France near Nancy. In the garden I
have started to implant some different species to obtain a touch of
exoticism and I would like to complete with some aroids. I have a good
exposition to sun but a little under the wind from south/south-east for
the moment (the bamboos are not well developed for the moment because
it is only the second year of installation).
So if you can give me some species in particular, I would be very glad.
Thanks a lot

Franck, you could always try some of
the more tropical genera like Colocasia, Alocasia and Remusatia. All
have a few species that can overwinter underground in zone 7. Also a
few of the Amorphophallus and I even know a few people who over winter
Philodendron bippenatifidum in zone 7. Those will dieback to the
ground every winter but given a well drained spot will come back with
full force in spring.
Where are you located?
