Arisaema franchetianum 'Hugo' is a selection we made from a batch of flowering A. franchetianum in 2003. This particular clone was much more vigorous with more and larger flowers. Thanks to the magic of tissue culture, we are able to make this excellent clone available. A. franchetianum 'Hugo' emerges in late June (NC) to produce large tripartite (3-parted) leaves. Alongside the emerging leaves are stunning, cobra head-like purple and white striped inflorescences. The 15" tall x 2' wide clump makes a great bold textural element in the garden even without the flowers...more exciting than a hunting trip with Dick Cheney...and without the medical bills!
