Arisaema dracontium 'Nebraska' came to us from the late plantsman Harlan Hamernik, who grew these from seed from a Nebraska population. In our dry shade production area, this form of Arisaema dracontium tops out at 3' tall...much taller than the NC form we also grow. 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.
