From the Sichuan and Yunnan Provinces in China, this arisaema has a magnificent leaf, made up of many narrow leaflets that radiate out from a central axis, like the underside of an umbrella, with beautifully green, arching, spreading spokes. Sitting below this radiating leaf, awaiting its turn for attention, is the flower. The glossy spathe hood is typically purple-brown to maroon with vanilla-cream striping. The greenish spadix is sometimes washed in purple and sometimes drenched in purple, depending on whether or not the leaf has been successful in impersonating an umbrella. We recommend you add this to your garden for its primary function, i.e., sitting there and looking magnificent.
