Arachniodes simplicior 'Variegata'   East Indian Holly  Fern    Listed on our Fern Page with all of our Ferns.

  Tall Arisaemas can ONLY be shipped when fairly short or dormant - which means in early spring and then again when they go dormant. Invariably when we try to ship them when too tall and/or in bloom, they are damaged and we have to replace them!     We will ship when we can but if damage seems inevitable, we will wait! 

All Arisaemas have Atypical Roots and various times of the year have few or no roots.

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.

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.
