These have now grown beyond the point at which they can be shipped safely because of seasonal growth. They are still available from the nursery or any plant fair which we attend. They will be available again in early autumn through this site.

Product Details
We are very pleased to offer this species from Japan which is similar to A. maximowiczii but a little larger. 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 short purplish spathe limb (hood) at the base of which is a white mark. Page 280 in Guy & Liliane Gusman's book! Lovely. A must for the keen collector. High price is influenced from original bought in material.
