Plant details

Arisaema speciosum is a tender, tuberous perennial native to the eastern Himalayas. It has a mottled stem with usually a solitary, palmate leaf and a hooded, white-striped, purple spathe. It grows from fat, knobbly tubers, which are best planted singly in large pots for stability.

For best results grow Arisaema speciosum in a very sheltered spot in moist but well-drained soil. In colder regions, grow in pots which you can move indoors in autumn.
