This unique form of Arisaema taiwanense was brought into cultivation by Crug Farms and Heronswood Nursery in 1997 but has remained in short supply. Throughout the wild populations in Taiwan, there are isolated individuals with pewter leaves instead of the typical green. These pewter leaf plants make stunning garden specimens, with their giant radial leaves atop the 30" tall snakeskin-patterned stems. The macabre, black-striped hooded flowers emerge alongside the new leaves. The new leaves emerge green but quickly change to pewter, so don't panic.
