Description Germination Extended Information
 

Slender tall plant with mottled snake skin patterned stems. Spathe is purple brown with narrow white stripes the elongated hood tapers to a long thread. Single leaf is divided into 12 or so leaflets that too end with long fine points. Makes dime sized corms in its first year. One of the hardiest and easiest to grow Arisaema. Wonderful in the shade garden. Spathe withers to reveal green berries that ripen to a bright scarlet. Nearly all Arisaema species are gendered, but its interesting to note Arisaema are capable of changing their sex even in mid season. Small plants are usually male until the corm reaches sufficient size thus carbohydrate stores to support seed production then it becomes female! One of the very few plants capable of 'switching'.
