Description

This quite spectacular and easy-to-grow Asian arisaema has a sweetly scented flower, or spathe, that is bright green tinged with purple, with a long, whippy, slightly-scary tongue (spadix) that curves out of the flower. It also features a spectacular horseshoe-shaped leaf, held on the stalk just below the inflorescence, that boasts over a dozen leaflets!

Sowing Advice

Sow seeds IMMEDIATELY you receive them, at any time of the year, they depend on having several months, sometimes up to a year in cold, damp compost, (NOT DRY IN A FRIDGE) before they will germinate. Keep the seed tray moist in a cold greenhouse or shady corner and do not discard. These fresh seeds can be very slow to germinate but do not use any artificial heat in an attempt to germinate them as it may simply disrupt their germination mechanism causing them to enter even deeper dormancy.
