Product Details
A very easy species to grow, typical of this group of arisaemas. Growth starts a little later than some species, often as late as June. Leaves tend to rise first and unfurl as the flowers emerge. Starting with the leaves, these are probably the largest of the genus in our opinion - or at least the way we grow them they are! These are composed of three leaflets, two smaller and one large which can be up to 12 inches wide and 16 inches long, apple green and glossy. The flowers are quite unusual in that they have a degree of arching over to conceal the innards. This group was often named Arisaema franchetii ssp. purpureogaleatum.
