Dear Paul;
	It's been years since I have grown this, but vaguely recall 
that the spathe is palest green. I checked with 'Genera of Araceae' 
which describes Dracunculus as 'deep purple or white'. Since there's 
ONLY 2 species and vulgaris is easily 'deep purple', I guess my 
recalled 'palest green' is another's 'white'.

	Any way, not yellow.
