I was out in the garden today and took a few pics. Arisaema speciosum v. Magnificum is surely one of my favorites:

And here are a few others, including A. galeatum, A. concinnum and a group of A. tortuosum:

And finally, here is an unknown Pseudodracontium from Thailand that is not fully open, but it has a wonderful striped petiole:

There were lots more Arisaema blooming this time of year as you can imagine, but I did not bother with pics. I hope everyone likes them :D Dan

Thanks Viorna....not sure why the speciosum (and others) sometimes have the spadix get all weird like that....that is a monster spathe by the way for this species....easily 8 inches tall and big and wide....that is why this one is called Magnificum by the discoverer. This is one of my favorite genus :D Dan

I'm in awe.

Great plants and great pictures. Quite exotic to my eye. And my few are winding down for the season, I fear. Makes these all the more desirable.

Thanks so much for dangling these beauties in front of me; unobtainable as they are.

Dan, you always post outstanding pictures! They are all great looking plants, but the color on Arisaema speciosum v. Magnificum is stunning.

Happy to know there are a few "waiting in the wings". I enjoy a long parade, particularly when it's the likes of these.

Dan, Both the A. speciosum and A. concinnum I got from you this spring bloomed wonderfully. The speciosum got knocked over in a torrential rain we just had, even though I had put the tuber down 7 inches, but the concinnum is standing up just fine. I could hardly believe that thread appendix on the speciosum which I measured as over a meter long.

Just wonderfull!!

George

Hi George, It is always wonderful to hear when others have success with tubers I send them!! I am glad they did so well. Was the concinnum the green or purple variant?? Most of the ones I get are green, but sometimes a purple one slips in there to keep it all interesting :D Dan

It was one of the green ones Dan, but I was thrilled with it. These sinarisaemas with the radial leaves was what really got me interested in these anyway. I think these leaves are just about perfect as accent plants in the shady garden, and hopefully concinnum will form a good clump as it is supposed to be one of the stoloniferous ones.

So, here is the Pseudodracontium after it completely opened:

I will have to see if I can get an ID from the guys on aroid-l :D Dan
