Arisaema 'Trumpeteer' is a 70 year old Scottish/German hybrid whose popularity has spiked recently due to both increased publicity and a dissatisfaction with other selections on the market. Because of its unique hairy top, sharp tongue, and prickly nature, Arisaema 'Trumpeteer' is a selection you'll either love or hate. Because Arisaema 'Trumpeteer' is such an attention-drawing specimen, we recommend it be situated around casinos, golf courses, and fancy hotels, where it really thrives. It's still unclear if it can adapt or thrive in austere environments, such as at a white house. When attacked, its unique sound-based defense system emits a series of loud and offensive tweets. Arisaema 'Trumpeteer' is a towering, all-male selection, best planted at a distance from most female selections due to its highly aggressive nature. While fertile, it usually only produces viable offspring when used to pollinate Eastern European natives. Arisaema 'Trumpeteer' has long been naturalized worldwide, albeit strangely absent south of the US border, where its legend as the regionally-known Buildmea Wallflower continues to grow. Arisaema 'Trumpeteer' is very expensive to own, maintain, and potentially upsetting to your neighbors, so select these at your own risk. For Brexit customers, multiply the price in dollars by 810,000 to convert to Pence.
