Arisaema tortuosum is one of the true conversation pieces of the hardy aroid world. The thick, 4' tall, fleshy petiole (stalk) of Arisaema tortuosum emerges in early June, adorned by two tropical-looking, palmate green leaves near the top. As the leaves unfurl, the pitcher that tops the stem opens to reveal a green Jack-in-the-pulpit flower, but with a whip-like tongue that extends from the mouth of the flower upwards to 12" or more...it don't get much weirder than this...a flower arranger's dream and an anal-retentive gardener's nightmare!
