This Himalayan species from regions around Darjeeling and Sikkim, India, makes a stunning specimen plant to 4'+ tall. The textured, tripartite green leaf, often edged in purple, is similar to A. speciosum with which it grows. The early spring flower, which resembles an Arisaema ringens with a lime-green helmet, emerges with the foliage and sits atop a short stem near the ground. We find that good drainage and protection from summer rains are best for success in our climate.
