Nice looking plant!! I grew a different clone of what was sold as X. sagittifolium. While it had great variegation the leaves were always deformed. I wasn't able to get a large enough rhizome to overwinter dormant and it didn't make it through last winter.

I got one of these this spring. Was pretty small and have found it so far to be pretty slow growing. Love the violet running up thru the stem. Hope I can keep it going thru winter in the greenhouse.
God gave us wings. He just called them horses
