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.

Arisaema flavum ssp. abbreviatum   Yellow Chinese Cobra Lily     Zone: 4B-7  

Arisaema flavum ssp. abbreviatumBoth the Gusmans and Li and Heng, authors of the Draft Treatment for the Flora of China, have concluded that Arisame flavum is "highly variable". The draft treatment rejects any  subdivisions of flavum. The Gusmans have dropped the name A. flavum subsp. abbreviatum.   Translated, this offering is supposed to be shorter form than the species but experts no longer recognize a separate name for the shorter form -- they're just all Arisaema flavum now, considered highly variable in height -- however our seed for this and the above (from a devoted grower of Arisaemas) came listed as A. flavum and A.f.ssp. abbreviatum and thus we offer it as such and anticipate these seed grown plants to be shorter at maturity.  Seed grown in their 3rd growth cycle.  Some bloomed in 2012.  CANNOT TAKE EXCESS MOISTURE IN WINTER.

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.

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.

Arisaema ringens       Cobra Lily      Zone: 6-9            

Arisaema ringens       Cobra LilyWoodland perennial that is native to Japan. It is closely related to the Jack-in-the-pulpit that is native to eastern North America (Arisaema triphyllum). Each tuber produces a single stalk containing two glossy green trifoliate leaves,. From the center of the leaf stalks rises a cobra-like flower in spring. Each flower consists of a showy, green and purple striped spathe (to 4-6" tall) with a hood that covers the inner yellow to white flower spike. Soil must be consistently moist but does poor in heavy clay soil.

(Lobelia) 'Monet Moment' got here just fine and are in great shape.  I am "transitioning" them as I write.  Many thanks for so much care and concern about the weather.  I used your printed out form and Bill, the postman, put them on the front porch as requested.  I have never experienced such great care and communication!  Bravo!

Aruncus dioicus   Goatsbeard, Native       Zone: 3-7      

Aruncus dioicusLike a giant white Astilbe, w/ 6' tall blooms, this handsome plant is beautiful for many months. Staking isn't necessary -- you probably couldn't push them over.

Aruncus diocus 'Child of Two Worlds' (A. diocus ‘Zweiweltenkind’)  Compact Goatsbeard  Z:3-7  

Aruncus diocus 'Child of Two Worlds'The same as the species but this German hybrid performs much better in windy areas due to being shorter and stockier, reaching 30" in bloom rather than 6 feet.  Also it may be a better height in a smaller garden.

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.
