However, It is also a variable species whose medium-large foliage can range from green, to green or reddish-green with lighter spots, and even an all-purple-ish leaf form. The mature foliage is always heavy veined and textured. The rhizomatous species bears showy, late season, yellow flowers on medium-tall stems.
