arisaema speciosum

Postby woodthrush » May 25, 2010 1:50 pm

I bought quite a few different ones this spring. I think I'm getting hooked on arisaema. Between the 'hood' and the coloring of the stem, you would almost think it was a snake.

Thanks for sharing. I'm definitely loving these too, but still only have two varieties. I keep telling myself that I need to start more kinds, but my hosta budget usually gets in the way ;)

Something, maybe a skunk, attack this one. I found it chewed in several pieces, the leaves torn from it, and the bulb pulled from the pot and chewed up! Why do the critters always eat the expensive stuff?
