Aroids, Part XIV... Arisaema Urashima
This is a Chinese Jack in the pulpit that has a nicely sinister appearance; darkish green leaves that open like a big hand, and deep chocolate floral structures with a foot long whip arising from the spadix (Jack). I have mine growing in a slightly dry raised bed in light shade, and it seems pleased enough that it's multiplying. I'm looking forward to seeing this dark beauty in a large patch.
