(JACK IN THE PULPIT)
A large group of perennials native to Asia and North America with new species coming into cultivation yearly. The spathe and spadix, which constitute the flowers, are typical of the Aroids. Spikes of decorative berries appear later. For fertile, moisture-retentive, but well-drained soil in light shade. The species most likely to be (outdoor) hardy for gardeners in really cold regions of Canada are A. amurense, dracontium, flavum, sikokianum and triphyllum.
A small species from the Himalayas whose inflorescense has been described as looking like a yellow owl. It makes a great companion to yellow and green variegated plants. Very robust and accepting of both sun and shade. It has a subtle, elf-like presence. Very limited this year.
Easy, warm germinator.
