Aroids, Part XV... Arisama Heterophyllum

In our garden, Arisama heterophyllum has to be the ultimate Jack in the Pulpit; four feet tall and massive in appearance, it hails from China and is often called the dancing crane; an appropriate name, as it looks like a giant bird holding its wings out as it struts. I've found this plant needs plenty of water when its growing, as it just leaps out of the ground, raising this huge plant in two weeks.

Wow, what a fantastic Arisaema. The two sets of leaves really do look like wings and they are so beautifully figured.
Ki... my picture actually doesn't do the plant justice... it is way cool.
