Searching Genus for ARISAEMA

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.

ARISAEMA consanguineum (ex Perfect Wave) New Summer447
1.2m  Zone: 6
This season we are again able to offer seed of some rather special forms of the species originally developed by Ellen Hornig of Seneca Hill Perennials. Here is what she had to say:

"Our interest in arisaemas has become focused rather narrowly on developing spectacular selections of Arisaema consanguineum. Not only is this Sino-Himalayan species hardy and adaptable, it exhibits some amazing foliar variations."

In describing Perfect Wave, Ellen said: "Our own introduction, and a lovely one. The base color of the leaflet is a glaucous blue-gray, the leaflet center is brushed with silver, and the leaflet edges undulate seductively." This form is a very good parent which tends to produce bluish seedlings.
Germination Instructions: Easy, warm germinator.

ARISAEMA consanguineum (Poseidon) New 455
In describing her 'Poseidon' Ellen Hornig of Seneca Hill Perennials says:

"This is a massive plant in which the base color of the leaflet is a steely blue-green, the silver center is pronounced, and the leaf edges are strongly crimped and waved. Everything about this one is big (even the seeds are twice normal size) leading us to wonder about tetraploidy. The sea god should be proud to lend it his name." Very limited.

ARISAEMA flavum ssp. abbreviatumJune467
30cm  Zone: 3
This subspecies, native to Asia and the central Himalaya, is actually the commonest in cultivation, and the smallest of all Arisaema. According to 'The Genus Arisaema' the small inflorescence is "quite dark inside and with a spathe short, green, or yellowish, purple within, streaked with green." The leaves are much more broadly lanceolate than the species, with a plain green top and the underside shiny.
Germination Instructions: Easy, warm germinator.
15 seeds  $4.25   

ARISAEMA flavum ssp. tibeticumMay-June470
This fragrant subspecies is taller and with a larger inflorescence. The bright yellow spathe does not fold over as much at the top as do the other forms. It also lacks the conspicuous purple blotch in the throat; so that the yellow is purer.
