Re: Pinellia tripartita - is it a weed?


Nick,

I am growing this plant just across the Tasman here in Melbourne.
As the others have said it is fairly well behaved and spreads 
'moderately'.
I nip the seed heads off just to reduce it's fecundity (say that 
fast with a kiwi accent !).
It is a beaut. little plant for sure.

Cheers,
           Rob ( It is 29degC here today and it's still only 
October......... GROAN. )
