Arisaema flavum - Jack in the Pulpit - 10 Fresh Seeds

Arisaema flavum - Jack in the Pulpit

This is a listing for 10 seeds of this smaller hardy perennial member of the arum family.

This species is known as the Jack in the Pulpit. It produces a single flower up to 0.4 metres tall (including the stem) and it is this arrangement of its flower which looks like a preacher in a pulpit that leads to the common name. The flower, as the Latin name suggests, is mainly yellow, with a deep mauve area inside with contrasting vertical white and green stripes. The spadix has numerous small flowers that open in turn from the base. The single leaf stem has a very large, five parted leaf. It is deciduous, dying back to an underground tuber, which if well mulched, will overwinter in most temperate gardens.

The plant comes from Ethiopia, through the Arabian Peninsular into Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Nepal, Tibet and China. It is always found at altitudes of up to 1500 metres in the wild, usually in dappled clearings in woodland meaning it is ideally suited to a temperate climate. Grow it in a moist location, with winter protection from severe freezes (a mulch layer of several cm will suffice) or in pots (large pots it must be said). When you consider that single rhizomes of this species can set you back 4 or 5 times the price of a pack of 10 seeds, this represents an inexpensive way of getting a large number of plants.

Germination is straightforward and full instructions can be found by following this link, which provides details of all the Arisaema species we stock. This species is hardy in Zone 7 through 9.
