much more striking "versions" of it. Sazensoo also, it should go back in
meditation. Good reason to give it a Zen-based name.  >>


Are you sure that you have A. sazensoo? To me it is one of the most striking,
with a long black spathe limb extending out at a right angle. It is often
noticed by garden visitors.
