A lovely selection of this easy species with attractive variegation running down the centre of the leaves and deeply coloured spathes.
Arisaema consanguineum has a very large distribution in the wild. In fact, this is the most widespread of all the Asian species and it is not surprising that there are numerous regional differences between some wild populations. Here in the UK, most forms are perfectly hardy when grown in a partially shaded position in well drained, humous rich soil, although it can take a little more sun than most Arisaema.
Arisaema consanguineum has either 1 or 2 leaves, each with up to 22 leaflets, often with tips ending in long drooping threads. The inflorescence is generally green in colour with hints of red or maroon.
As with most Arisaemas, a shaded spot will suit Arisaema consanguineum best, although it can tolerate a little more sun than some other species.
