Product Details
We are very pleased to offer this species from Japan which is similar to A. tashiroi. The shoots on this species emerge in early spring, from the start it looks interesting - as do all of this genus. Green and white stripes on the growing point erupt to reveal the folded leaves, two on this species which unfurl to form a digitate leaf. Rich green in colour, they remain on the plant well into the summer. Flowers are quite unique in the Arisaema world, they are green at the base with a strong bloom to the outer surface, with a long upward pointing purplish spathe limb (hood) occasionally all green. Page 256 in Guy & Liliane Gusman's book! Lovely. A must for the keen collector. High price is influenced from original bought in material.
