Arisaema dracontium

Arisaema dracontium

Common name green dragon
Family araceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers light green (May-June)
Size 1-3'
Light part-full shade
Cultural notes moist soil

Not the showiest of arisaema's, but all of them are worth trying at least once. Keeping it alive in our garden may be a challenge, but it at least lived into a second year, long enough to show off its intriguing flower structure. Compared to the common Jack-in-the-Pulpit (A. triphyllum)), this species' leaves are divided into more leaflets (at least five), with a longer spadix extending up out of the spathe.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
