Q-T-Pie Alert! This Arisaema is cuter than a bug's ear, really...its 3-lobed ruffled leaf has salmon-colored margins and tapering tips and is paint-splotched with lighter patches of cream. The petiole boasts the very "in" this season designer-inspired reptile patterning in shades of green, olive-green, and cream or pink. If that isn't enough for you, the bronze-colored spathe which tops the leaf-stalk in late April (in NC) is striped in cream and the spadix color varies from cool cream to speckled bronze and is shaped like, well, the upper part of a Q-tip. We recommend a very well-drained site for A. lobatum. For your viewing pleasure only.
