Description

1x packet containing 8x Arisaema speciosum berries (each berry contains at least 1 seed).

Arisaema speciosum has a wide distribution in the Himalayan region. This has given rise to a number of varieties, each with its own distinct qualities. This is the standard form, typical of the species, and a superb garden plant. Hardy and easy to please.

The single trifoliate leaf is large and broad and can reach around 70cm high. The spathe colour is red or maroon with vertical white stripes. This is held beneath the foliage and emerges when the leaf unfolds. The spadix appendage is extremely long, often seen tangled up with the leaf or trailing along the ground.

Arisaema speciosum seeds are highly ephemeral in their viability. Whilst reasonably commonly offered for sale from large seed merchants, these seeds will almost always be dead. Once allowed to dry out, germination will be practically zero. The seeds offered here are from our own plants. They have been kept in the berries and chilled in order to preserve viability.

For delivery to the UK only. We would suggest carefully cleaning the seeds from the berry flesh under running water and sowing immediately.
