This superb species from Manchuria has triple-divided, crisped edge leaves and a purple-ended, emerald green spathe broadly lined with white. It is easily grown in almost any garden soil, although best in humus enriched loam in light shade. One of the most northerly species, this variety is very hardy.
For best results, sow seeds as soon as you receive them onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. These seeds can be very slow indeed to germinate, and may wait for spring before emerging whenever sown. Do not use artificial heat to try to germinate them as it will simply disrupt their germination mechanism. Please be very patient, and do not discard the seed pan.
