This unique form of Arisaema heterophyllum hails from China's magical Mt. Omei, where it resides under giant cryptomerias around the Baguo Temple. The 3' tall slender stalk is topped with a large horseshoe-shaped leaf composed of up to 23 leaflets. Emerging from near the base is a separate 3' tall stalk, topped at leaf level with a green helmeted pitcher with a long, erect whip-like green tongue. The Mt. Omei-native Arisaema heterophyllum 'Bagou' has one sixth the normal number of chromosomes (in case this affects your purchasing decisions) and is usually a female, compared with the more common bisexuality found in this species. If you're into long green tongues or other such deviations, we've got the plant for you. Arisaema heterophyllum is easy to grow but prefers well-drained soils.
