Arisaema taiwanense 'Silver Form'

Arisaema taiwanense hails from the mountains of Taiwan. It emerges in late spring with a propeller-shaped leaf of many leaflets frequently with a burgundy edge trailing into a dangling burgundy drip tip. The stems are mottled with burgundy-brown which matches the dramatic spathe. 'Silver Form' has leaves with a silver sheen. Very choice. This is a dramatic and satisfying cobra lily.
