Wow!  :o Love those Jacks!! Esp. the taiwanense with the long 'cilia' at the tips of each leaf part. Very cool. How hardy are these varieties? I have the ringens as overwintering seedlings in pots coming into their 3rd year so I'm hoping perhaps to get a bloom this year?

A few in bloom here

A.ringens
A.tiwanense
A.ciliatum
A.speciosum

and full of promise A.exappendiculatum which i find is a bit too vigorous in the garden with its strong stolons .

Cheers Dave.  

Wouldn't mind if any Arisaema spread voluntarily in my garden ;) I am also trying to increase my stock of Arisaema by sowing. Have got seed from Chris Chadwell and they always sprout well.

A. ringens has been hardy for me here in Massachusetts (near the New Hampshire line), although I have lost this species and others due to mole digging.  I also grow an unidentified Arisaema collected by Darrell Probst (I think China, or possibly Korea) that looks much like A. taiwanense, although without those wonderful long thready ends to the leaves.

Didn't mean to criticise your English - I find it quite naturally that someone find this flower beautiful like a mother find her child beautiful ;)

The flowers of Arisaema kiushianum are soooooo cute, and from the vantage point of looking straight on at the flowers, they look like a little owls.
