The reptile-patterned petiole of the Chinese Arisaema lobatum is a jazzed mix of green, olive-green, and cream or pink. The 20" tall flower stalk rises above the tripartite leaves in April (in NC) in muted shades of olive-green with pinkish veining, and its spadix is tipped in dull dissing intended to the fish of the same name. Arisaema lobatum is a small but quite lovely Jack-in-the-pulpit that is quite unique from others in the genus. We have found that Arisaema lobatum thrives for us only when planted where the soils stay quite dry in the dormant period.
