The Plant That Shouldn't Grow Here...
However, I'm not complaining. Arisaema speciosum is from the Himalayas and most such plants die an ignoble, but quick death in our steambath summers, but this stately (four foot tall) jack in the pulpit has thrived and bloomed here for four years (which, as I recall is forty years in jack in the pulpit years). It is rated zone 7, and even there is thought tricky and usually is grown in greenhouses. So, a tip of my hat to this visitor from the high mountains of India, Nepal, and China... now, pass the corn dogs!
