Asian “Jack in the Pulpits” are dramatic, exotic showpieces in the shade to part-shade garden.  Some varieties have foliage to five feet high!  The flowers range from beautiful to bizarre, but all the varieties are fascinating and sure to attract attention.   All arisaemas have large clusters of bright, orange-red berries in the fall.   (sikokianum Silver Center pic at left)

 Plant Jacks in the shade or part shade about 5-6” deep in humus-rich, well-drained soil and mulch.  Arisaemas can grow one zone colder if you plant them 8 to 12 inches deep.  

Arisaemas can be shipped as dormant corms (bulbs) in March, April and early May.  Shipping costs for dormant corms are ½ of the regular cost of shipping!  (Arisaemas are also available afterwards as growing plants.)  We are taking orders now for shipping beginning in March.  Please call or fax us at 860-974-3951 with your order.
