The Snakes Of Spring

One of the highlights of every spring is when the arisaemas raise their heads like so many exotic snakes in the garden; especially Arisaema serrata v. mayebarie, which grows ramrod straight three feet in the air, with a coal black flower, and blackish leaves. It stays in bloom for weeks, and probably more than any other plant we grow, stops garden tourers dead in their tracks.

It stopped me in my tracks as I was scrolling down to see the azaleas! Wow. Very imposing and beautiful.
Love it!
What an absolutely spectacular flower. I've never seen one before.
it is just the most striking plant I've ever grown.
I have never heard or seen this plant, how cool! Are they related to Jack in Pulpit?
If you like these plants, take a look at this:
These people have more arisaema than you can shake a stick at!
