(syn: Arisaema urashima) Each 15" tall, dusty purple stalk of Arisaema thunbergii ssp. urashima is topped by one horizontal leaf with 11-15 narrow leaflets radiating out from a central horseshoe-shaped base. In mid-spring, the flower emerges from the main stalk with a purple pitcher. The top cover narrows to a point that hangs over the front of the pitcher and from inside emerges a purple, whip-like tail extending upward to nearly 18"...a true dominatrix moment! Arisaema thunbergii ssp. urashima is a very easy-to-grow aroid that offsets well unlike many of its cousins. Arisaema thunbergii ssp. urashima is best in typical to dry woodland conditions.
