Arisaema dracontium 'Gene's Giant' is a giant strain of our native green dragon from Indiana plantsman Gene Bush. For Gene, these plants reach the extraordinary height of 5-6' tall. In our dry shade production area, we have yet to top 3' tall. Arisaema dracontium most closely resembles the Asian Arisaema heterophyllum, except the green Jack-in-the-pulpit inflorescence (green hood and upright, thin yellow tongue) produced in mid-May is held just above the horseshoe-like foliage of 7-15 leaflets. Green dragons go dormant in midsummer, so don't panic...average to slightly moist soils are best.
