Plants in the clade Araceae possess a characteristic inflorescence consisting of a vase-like, ensheathing modified leaf or spathe that surrounds a slender finger-like spadix
. The spadix
often consists of a proximal reproductive zone and a distal, sterile appendix.

The weevils will typically rest in protected areas near the apez or base of the spadix
where they are covered in part by the spathe, and move only minimally for minutes to hours.
Strip an autumn spadix
into the breeze, with the sun downwind, and half the sky fills with backlit parachutes.
Unique Characteristics: Flower is not a true "lily," but is often referred to as such; spathe of color surrounds the spadix
(SPAY-diks) is a thick or fleshy flower spike usually surrounded by a conspicuous or colorful bract called a spathe.
Name Origin: From the Greek words anthos (flower) and oura (tail), referring to the tail-like inflorescence or spadix
The fruiting spadix
now carries about 220 bright orange berries.
A particular form of inflorescence typifies some plant families, such as the compound umbel of Apiaceae (Umbelliferae), the ultimate spike of Gramineae, the capitulum or head of Asteraceae, the helicoid cyme of Boraginaceae, and the spadix
Resembling fluted cups, flower bracts (called spathes) - pure white, cream, gold, yellow, pink, or spotted - surround a central yellow flower spike (spadix
Reproductive shoots develop iteratively over several months by growing new branches, each terminating in a spadix
or spike of flowers that also develops sequentially over days.
