The West Indian Arrowroot rhizome is high in starch and is the commercial source of arrowroot flour. In the garden it is a great living mulch plant, just chop and drop when needed. Rapid leaf growth takes place over summer, dying back in winter at which time the tubers are ready to harvest. This is a lovely showy plant to have in the garden whether you use it in cooking or not.
