Arisaema saxatile is a lovely little arisaema from China emerges in late May in NC with two leaves of 5-7 leaflets. Between the two leaves emerges a 15" petiole (stalk) that is topped in early June with a lovely small white pitcher from which emanates a 6-9" long, dark green tongue that hangs downward like a dog that's chased far too many cars. The flower gives off a delightful lemony scent...a nice change for a group whose close relatives are known for a more offensive body odor. Arisaema saxatile has proven to be a great garden performer, reliably offsetting and flowering each season.
