Rare Plants Are in Bloom in the Yasnaya Polyana Greenhouse


Welcoming the warmth of spring, some rare tropical plants began blooming in the greenhouse on the grounds of the Yasnaya Polyana Hotel: Amorphophallus konjac (also known as konjaku, konnyaku potato, devil's tongue, voodoo lily, snake palm, or elephant yam) and Russelia equisetiformis (known as fountainbush, firecracker plant, coral plant, coral fountain, coralblow and fountain plant).

Amorphophallus (“shapeless” in Latin) is a genus in the Araceae family; it includes over 170 tropical and subtropical tuberous plants. This exotic plant bloomed in our greenhouse for the first time in the spring of 2017. Amorphophallus's inflorescences consist of an elongated spadix and a spathe. When in bloom, the plant gives off a very pungent smell.
