Arisaema dracontium   Green Dragon        Zone: 4-9     

Arisaema dracontiumA Native relative of Jack-in-the-Pulpit but with a long whip on the 'Jack'. More interesting and exotic & RARE. 7-12 leaflets. (Younger plants have from 3-5 leaflets.) Needs at least average moisture. Red fruit looks similar to the common Jack. Good with hostas or ferns that fill in when it goes summer DORMANT.  Like our other Native, this blooms when the bulb is still fairly small compared to some Arisaemas so don't be surprised to see a small bulb -- that's it's nature. 

Soil: Ave. to moist         H: 12-36" W: 12-18"         B/M: Green 5-6

Arisaema heterophyllum        Dancing Crane Cobra Lily      Zone:  5a-9b   

Arisaema heterophyllum        Cobra LilyVery late to emerge - often June.  A 36" tall, very late to emerge (June) Arisaema known as "Dancing Crane" in Japanese.  With one leaf, it's still impressive as that leaf consists of 15 leaflets with the green flower held high above it.  The green spathe has a very long, whip-like spadix (drip tip) that descends a bit then arches erectly up.  Very dramatic.!  Easy to grow.

Soil:  MOIST but well-drained      H: 32-36"  W: 16":         B/M: Green/June

Arisaema kiushianum     Cobra Lily            Zone: 5-9       *    

Arisaema kiushianumThis is a remarkable, foot tall (or a bit more) Japanese species with 7-13 lovely leaflets held on a short stalk and a dark purple spathe adorned with white stripes inside.  It also has a delightful tail-like spadix more than 5" long described as, "Like a mouse doing the rumba."  (Quote when you just can't say it better!)  This late spring bloomer is possibly the cutest of all Cobra Lilies.  *Tolerates heavy shade and wet soil.  Needs consistent moisture.  Can change sex depending on growing conditions - can be male one year and female the next!  It's paradioecious if you want to impress your friends with the correct word for that.  Plants go summer dormant unless, per chance, you get a pregnant female staying around to produce seed.

Ours are grown HERE from seed -- takes 3-5 years to reach bloom & sale size. These are 3-4 year olds bulbs and most will bloom this year.   These will be mixed bloom colors, green, maroon, possibly a 'Lazy S'S Form' that slipped in by accident if you're lucky!  Small but bloom-size bulbs.  (This native blooms at a very young age and relatively small bulb and yet will eventually grow huge if happy.)

Aruncus dioicus 'Kneiffii'       Compact Goatsbeard        Zone: 3-7      

Aruncus dioicus 'Kneiffii'Differs from the species in that it's more compact AND has deeply cut foliage but the trade off is slightly less showy flowers but still very nice.  Maxing out at 36" tall, the rich green foliage is almost threadlike and it has tiny, cream colored blooms rising above the foliage in late May.  Looks a bit like an Astilbe.

Aruncus x 'Horatio'      Hybrid Goatsbeard        Zone: 4-9        

Aruncus x 'Horatio'      Hybrid GoatsbeardA hybrid between the species A. aethusifolius and A. diocus introduced by the famous German nurseryman Ernst Pagels.. This horticultural marriage produces offspring that are about 32" tall with multiple bronze stems and green cut foliage that turns red in Autumn.  It has an almost shrub-like appearance.  Atop reddish stems are found long fluffy cream blooms.  The tiny blooms are held out from the main stem like little streamers and start turning brown as bloom fade from the bottom of the bloom to the top compared to other Aruncus, that turn brown all at once.  This unique trait gives it a two-toned appearance as blooms fade and is much more attractive than those of other Aruncus.
