Dear Neil,

Good to ''hear'' you on aroid-l!
Yup, A. konjac will grow where it is COLD!   Tom Croat grows this sp. in his garden beds OUTSIDE at his home in Mo., it was in seed when I visited him for the Missouri Bot. garden Aroid conference, a spectacular sight, leaves were still ''up'' too.
The petiole in the photo/jpeg LOOKS like A. konjac to me, but let`s wait for some other growers, more knowledgable than I, to respond.  This has NEVER been my genus/group!
