Arisaema speciosum is a very popular variety. Grow in sheltered, shady conditions in soils that remain moist in the summer months and is free draining. Remember to mark the position you plant them in as they can easily get lost. Ensure they are planted quite deep as doing this will protect the tubers and rhizomes from frost. Arisaema's are unusual plants but once established in a shady spot with good drainage and plenty of leaf mould, will require little attention. They are quite spectacular plants for any garden.
This variety has a small flower form and is not usually offered. Needs protection from severe frosts.
Aspect: A shady spot in the garden.
