We are truly thrilled to be able to introduce the latest hybrid from Ellen Hornig of Seneca Hill Nursery, that she describes as her best arisaema introduction ever. Ellen describes it as "a real drama queen" ..."sort of Arisaema 'Perfect Wave' on steroids"... "bigger, more vigorous, better substance, and a strong rippled/crisped edge". The 30" tall thick stalk is topped with a glaucous green radial leaf with heavily rippled edges, and adorned with a wide central stripe. Arisaema consanguineum does not grow vigorously in deep shade, so a very open canopy or a few hours of morning sun is preferable. I'm not sure what else I add, other than to christen this the Lady Gaga of Jack-in-the-pulpits.
