Arisaema dahaiense is a species, named in 1977, from the Gaoligong (Dahai) Shan region of Western Yunnan, China that is similar (or identical to) Arisaema galeatum (P. Bruggeman - personal conversation). Although it is similar to many of the hard to grow high Himalayan species, Arisaema dahaiense has proven quite growable in our climate. The petiole supports large trifoliate leaves, very similar to Arisaema speciosum. The hood-like dark purple, yellow-veined spathe and long tongue (spadix) reminds us of Arisaema griffithii.
